Leeds United manager Marcelo Biesla hailed the performances of centre-back Pontus Jansson and teenage attacker Jack Clarke after sides 1-1 draw against Brentford last weekend.
Sweden international defender Jansson rescued a point for Leeds with a 88th minute header at Elland Road and afterward Biesla admitted he thinks the 27-year-old is in the form of his life.
“Pontus is playing his best football, but this is not because I am his head coach.’’ Biesla told leedsunited.fc.
“I don’t think we should take my opinion seriously though, because I don’t know all of his football history, but we can say for sure that he is playing at a high level.”
Biesla also singled out 17-year-old debutant Jack Clarke for praise after the young attacker put in a hugely impressive display after coming on as a substitute with 20 minutes to go.
“I am particularly happy with Jack’s performance, the answers he gave us were very difficult and he had no problem in expressing his personality or skills.’’ He continued.
“We give a lot of credit to what the Academy brings to the first team, so I would like to thank the Academy for all of the good players they are giving us.
“Jack is a young player at 17-years-old and he has very good skills.”
Leeds draw against Brentford sees them drop to third in the Championship table behind Sheffield United and West Brom.
