Leeds United defender Pontus Jansson has told the Swedish media he’s hoping the injury he picked up last night shouldn’t be too serious. The 26-year-old had to come off during Sweden’s clash with Norway.
Speaking to Fotbollskanalen, the Leeds United player was asked about the injury which forced him off in the 70th minute.
Jansson said he doesn’t know how the injury came about, but wasn’t prepared for what happened. The defender revealed at the moment he’s feeling fine about the injury, but he’ll know more today when he gets a check-up.
“I took a hit just above the knee. I don’t know what happened. I haven’t seen the situation for myself. I was not prepared that I would get a knock. I got hurt and couldn’t complete the game. But it feels alright. I will check it in the morning as a precaution but it feels okay,” said Jansson.
Last night would have come as blow to Jansson after being overlooked for the game against France last week. The Leeds United star was given a chance in Oslo to stake a claim in Janne Andersson’s starting eleven ahead of the World Cup next year, and the player would have wanted to get ninety minutes under his belt.
The Elland Road faithful will now be holding their breath that the injury doesn’t affect his preseason.
