Jaime Lannister from Game of Thrones uses Jimmy Kimmel audience to chant about Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa
Game of Thrones star and Leeds fan, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau was unable to hide his admiration for Marcelo Bielsa on an American talk show.
Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister in Game of Thrones, was promoting the show’s eighth and final season, which airs next Monday, on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
And he reckons United boss Bielsa would transform the north, one of the constituent regions of the Seven Kingdoms in the show, in the same way he has turned around the Whites’ fortunes.
Coster-Waldau said: “There’s this thing about a guy called Bielsa, which is a guy who comes and magically transforms this world for the good.

“So when everything is lost, up north, he will magically come and transform the north into this beautiful paradise.”
He then asked the audience to chant ‘In Bielsa We Trust’ and they obliged.
Coster-Waldau will be hoping Bielsa ends Leeds’ 15-year exile from the Premier League in May, while fans can catch them in action against Sheffield Wednesday on 13 April at 17:30 on talkSPORT 2.
