Newspaper interview with defender

15 June 2022

Brentford defender Pontus Jansson has discussed the way fatherhood has changed him. Pontus spoke to The Sun before the end of the season on a range of topics. He talked about the way being a father to two girls had made him more calm.

“My wife had our second baby seven weeks ago," said Pontus. “I used to have an aggressive character but since I’ve become a father to two girls something happened to me in a positive way. I got more cool and calm. Think more before I act.”

Pontus talked about his relationship with Brentford Head Coach Thomas Frank and others he had worked with. He also talked about his arrival at Brentford. Pontus joined The Bees in 2019 from Leeds United.

The piece was published just before the final day of the Premier League season. Brentford hosted Leeds and the visitors secured a victory to keep them in the Premier League. Read the piece here.
