Junior Firpo likens Leeds teammate to Game of Thrones character

Junior Firpo has delivered a hilarious comparison between Leeds United teammate Pascal Struijk and a famous Game of Thrones character.

Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who played Jamie Lannister on the show, is a recognised Leeds supporter. However, Firpo believes he’s found another connection between the club and the HBO series.

Firpo has compared 21-year-old Leeds defender Struijk to fictional character Khal Drogo from popular TV programme Game of Thrones. American actor Jason Momoa is the supposed lookalike.

For those non-Game of Thrones fans, make your mind up to see if there is any resemblance. Click here for more images of Struijk’s lookalike.

Firpo is certainly getting straight into the dressing room banter after his summer transfer.

He responded to Struijk on Instagram, who scored in a pre-season 1-1 draw with Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday.

Firpo a great addition to Leeds squad

It looks like 24-year-old Firpo is integrating into the Leeds group very quickly. 

One of the greatest strengths in the last few years at Elland Road is the togetherness of Marcelo Bielsa’s squad. 

There is the core group that got the Yorkshire club back into the Premier League, but last season several new faces merged into the squad effortlessly. 

Firpo, who seems lively on social media, already looks like a character that has settled well. He’s an ex-Barcelona player that on the pitch adds a lot of quality. Also, they were in desperate need of a new left-back.
