Being in Melbourne, Ledley quickly realised the most effective way to become a hit with the locals - pick your favourite Aussie Rules team!

The city hosts 10 of the 18 sides in the AFL and, with the influence of Spurs fan and Hawthorn FC star Sam Mitchell, Ledley chose to follow ‘The Hawks’ and even attended their match against Adelaide Crows at the famous MCG last Friday night.

Ledley announced his support for the reigning champs on Fox Footy’s popular AFL 360 show, resulting in our former skipper becoming the third highest influencer of the league on social media that night. Click above to see Ledley being interviewed by Mitchell for Hawks TV...
