Season eight of Game of Thrones has been slammed by fans of the show – and Mauricio Pochettino!

If you haven’t seen the final episode of Game of Thrones, or watched any of the final season, there are spoilers below.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!


After years of gripping drama, meticulous character development and more shocking deaths to shake a sword at, Game of Thrones went out in a blaze of genocidal dragon fire and queen slaying which has completely outraged the majority of its loyal fanbase.

Pochettino included.

We don’t know what he’s more angry about – Dany’s descent to Mad Queen, King Bran the Broken, or Tormund not getting it on with Brienne…

The Spurs manager is a HUGE Game of Thrones fan, and even named his beloved direwolf dog ‘Sansa’ after the newly-crowned Queen in the North, Sansa Stark.

And he sounded distraught his favourite show was such a let down – saying the final season ‘just made no sense’.

I mean, Bran? BRAN?! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!

“Ah, I am so disappointed,” said the Spurs boss in an exclusive interview with talkSPORT’s Laura Woods.

“I was disappointed with the fifth episode [The Bells – which has the lowest rating of any Game of Thrones episode ever and saw Queen Daenerys go from defender of the people to rampaging murdering maniac in about 20 minutes].

“It was an amazing series but the last year [the last season] it was like, ‘we need to finish, how can we finish?’

“I don’t know, it didn’t make sense! There was no common sense!

“I think we all feel the same, not only myself. I think all the people are not happy with the way it finished.”

Pochettino was then asked what GOT character is most like him.

You might think of Jon Snow – a leader of men, whose army would die for him on the battlefield.

Jon Snow, AKA Aegon Targaryen – not that that mattered in the end though…

Game of Thrones – HBO

Jon Snow, AKA Aegon Targaryen – not that that mattered in the end though…

You may think of the First Sword of Bravos, Syrio Forel – Master of the Water Dance and skilled in the art of attack.

You may even think of the Spider, Lord Varys – Pulling all the strings on the sidelines.

But his actual answer was…

“Maybe the dragon!

“I am like the dragon – I am strong!”
