Ledley defends ‘smiling’ picture after Coleman’s broken leg

Date published: Saturday 25th March 2017 2:20

Joe Ledley has defended himself after he was pictured in the aftermath of Seamus Coleman’s broken leg with a “smile” on his face.

Republic of Ireland defender Coleman had his leg fractured in two places and will face surgery today after a high tackle from Wales’ Neil Taylor during last night’s goalless draw in Dublin.

Pictures of the incident have circulated which appear to show Ledley with a “smile” as Coleman lies prostrate in the background.

Twitter was awash with suggestions that Crystal Palace midfielder Ledley was in fact “laughing” at the incident, while people also observed that Taylor, who claimed to be “in bits” was also far from distraught after his tackle.

Ledley though has taken to Twitter to defend himself and labelled the suggestions “nonsense”, after initially ignoring the accusations.
