Pontus Jansson drops F-bomb live on Sky Sports after Brentford seal play-off win

Brentford defender Pontus Jansson got caught up in the emotion of Brentford’s play-off win – by swearing on live television.

The popular centre-half helped his side seal a 3-2 aggregate win over Bournemouth.

It means the Bees will head to a second successive play-off final at Wembley next weekend.

The victory was even more impressive as the hosts went a goal behind early on. But they kept their composure and saw off the ten-man Cherries to set up a showdown with either Swansea or Barnsley next week.

Brentford came back from 2-0 down on aggregate to get the win and reach Wembley

And during the post-match celebrations, Jansson was interviewed live on Sky Sports .

Speaking to reporter Jonathan Oakes, Jansson could barely be heard amid the noise of the jubilant home fans.

He said: “This is football, I’ve missed it so much. Football without fans is nothing. I’m so f***ing happy.”

“There’s a lot of emotions of course. We conceded a crazy goal on the counter-attack but we stayed in the game.

“We kept our cool. Of course we haven’t done anything yet, we now have to win the final.

“But we can be happy.”

Due to the background noise of the Brentford fans, Jansson’s faux pas wasn’t originally picked up on by Oakes, but he quickly made Jansson apologise for the slip-up.

Brentford will now await the other semi-final second leg later tonight, with Swansea holding a slender 1-0 lead over Barnsley.
