Fans of Leeds United have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which former Leeds centre-back, Pontus Jansson, replied to a tweet of current United star, Liam Cooper.

In his post, Cooper looked back on the Whites’ 2-0 Premier League victory over Crystal Palace on Monday evening, with the 29-year-old claiming the fixture was ‘some night under the lights’, before congratulating Kalvin Phillips on making 200 appearances for the club and Patrick Bamford for scoring his 100th career goal.

Nice easy one to start off with, what number does Phillips wear for Leeds United?

In response, Jansson, who left Leeds for Brentford in the summer of 2019, congratulated Cooper for having a ‘fantastic game’ against the Eagles, as well as stating that he is happy to be witnessing the Scotland international’s ‘journey’ in the Premier League.

Fans of Leeds then flocked to Jansson’s tweet, with many stating how much they miss the centre-back, who is valued at £4.95 million (as per Transfermarkt).

Is Jansson a Leeds United legend?

Yes

All in all, it would appear that these Leeds fans remain very fond of their former player, despite his departure back in 2019, with some dubbing the centre-back a club legend, while others wished the 29-year-old luck for his promotion push with Brentford.
