Leeds United defender Pontus Jansson has told the Swedish media he doesn’t know the severity of the injury he picked up during the game with Bristol City on Tuesday night.
The 24-year-old had injury issues with Torino last season, and is now expected to miss Sweden’s World Cup qualifiers next month.
Speaking to Aftonbladet, Jansson revealed he felt something in his thigh during the defeat to Bristol City, and now it’s feeling tender. The central defender went on to say that at this stage he doesn’t know how long the injury will keep him out for.
“I have no idea yet how serious it is. I feel a bit in the thigh… Hopefully, it’s quick,” said the Leeds United defender.
When asked by Aftonbladet if it could be something serious like a rupture, Jansson said: “No, I certainly hope not.”
Jansson’s latest injury set back is more likely to affect Leeds United rather than Sweden, if it does mean he’s ruled out for his club after the international break. The Swede has become a key figure in Garry Monk’s side since making his debut earlier in the month.
