Ireland defender Sean St Ledger can't shake off Taylor Swift rumours
The Orlando City centre-half was grilled on his love life on Soccer Republic.

IRELAND DEFENDER SEAN St Ledger has responded to rumours of his links with pop sensation Taylor Swift.

The centre-half was asked about the ‘Shake It Off’ singer on RTÉ’s ‘Soccer Republic’ show on Monday and suggested the American songstress might be interested in coming to see him play for his new club, Orlando City, in MLS.

St Ledger, who signed for Kaka’s Orlando franchise last month, sent the rumour mill into overdrive on New Year’s Eve when he tweeted a picture of himself alongside Swift and his intriguing love life was put under the microscope by RTÉ’s football correspondent Tony O’Donoghue.

Asked whether or not Swift had been along to see him in action for his new American club, the 30-year-old responded: “She’s not been to a game, as of yet. I’m thinking that she might come to one of the New York ones. We’ll see.”

When pressed by O’Donoghue as to whether he was in a relationship with Swift, he demurred.

“That would be an exclusive for RTÉ, wouldn’t it!” he said. “I’m sitting on the fence.”

St Ledger is getting his career back on track in Florida following a difficult year, having been released by Leicester City last summer, and admits sharing a dressing room with Brazilian World Cup hero Kaka brings with it a unique perspective.

“Before the first game he spoke about when he’s been at AC Milan and Real Madrid, that he’s played with special individuals, but the most important thing was that they would win games as a team,” St Ledger said.

“I must admit he’s very, very humble,” he added of the 32-year-old. “He’s a good team player and he usually has a few words before the game.”
