Victor Anichebe is not one bit happy about being refused a picture with Game of Thrones stars

Premier League footballers can be fanboys too.

We hold our heroes on such a pedestal that it’s almost difficult to imagine them being denied anything.

We’re not saying that should be the case, nor are we going so far as to call Victor Anichebe a hero, but it’s oddly enjoyable to think of superstars being brushed off by other superstars.

The West Brom forward got all giddy when he saw two actors from hit series Game of Thrones show up in his hotel this week.

Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow on the show, and Rose Leslie, who plays Ygritte, declined Anichebe’s request for a photograph and the former Everton man vented his disgust online.

Spoiler alert, Vic. Jesus!
