Now available to purchase online, Sunday’s Match Programme includes an in-depth interview with captain Pontus Jansson.


Pontus on the Brentford dressing room:

“Christian Norgaard is the MVP as a player, and the MVP as a person. I’m always going in with enthusiasm and emotion, whereas he is the one with the calm solutions. When I doubt myself, I go to Christian and he makes me feel calm. He helps me to see things from the other side.

“Ivan [Toney] is always so calm. Before the Play-Off games last year, I had some doubts – there was a lot at stake – but he was so cool. ‘Pontus, don’t even worry, we have this,’ he would tell me. He’s the same on the pitch.

“Christian, Ivan, David [Raya] and me, together, are the spine of the team. With those people around me, I feel safe. They are fantastic footballers, and fantastic people and leaders.”


Facing his former employers:

“For a few years, when people thought about Leeds, I was the player. Now they have Kalvin Phillips, he’s their cult hero, but back then I was that type of player for them.

“Leeds is my past, I will always respect them and I will always follow them, even if the way I left wasn’t the best. I still have many friends there.

“Leading up to this game, there will be a lot of questions about me and Leeds. I want to win this game, 200 per cent. I want to win no matter what. Of course, I’d prefer that they were already safe, but we want to win this game and finish as high as possible.”


And his love for Malmö:

“When I see myself, I still see the kid with the Malmö badge on my shirt. I grew up following the team and I still follow them now. I’ve followed them since I was three years old.

“I’m more of a football fan than a player. As a fan, Malmö will always be my team. My biggest passion is supporting Malmö. When I’m at home in the summer, watching a game with a beer in my hand, singing and screaming, that’s when I can live out my passion.”
