Leeds United’s director of football Victor Orta has opened up on the decision to sell Pontus Jansson and replace him with Ben White in the summer of 2019. Jansson, a fan favourite at Elland Road, was allowed to join Brentford and White was drafted in on loan to plug the gap. Speaking at the StatsBomb conference,
Victor Orta said: “Here in England, people gave me a lot of credit like ‘wow, what a masterstroke, what a good decision’ because we sold Pontus Jansson and our decision [was] to bring in, on loan, Ben White. He had never played one game in the Championship, from Brighton, after two loans, one in League Two with Newport County, where we started to monitor him, one in League One with Peterborough. We need to know, at the end, this is a game and they are talking about predictions. For me, when you take a decision you need to analyse the past, don’t try to predict the future.”
