Philadelphia Eagles linebacker, Mychal Kendricks said he was 'flattered' by Rihanna's interest in him but admitted that he has struggled to get in contact with her.

The Barbados born pop star announced her interest in the NFL star two weeks ago when she posted a picture of Kendricks on her instagram account along with the caption: "Is it Monday? Cuz chhh #mcm (man crush monday)"

Kendricks appeared cool on the interest at first admitting that his teammates had joked about it but when asked if he would like to meet her he said "I don't want to talk about this".

However, now TMZsports are reporting that the linebacker was "flabbergasted and very flattered" by the attention and has been trying to reach out to her.

Kendricks recorded 81 tackles and four sacks this season for the Eagles who were eliminated from the playoffs by the New Orleans Saints in the wild card round. 

Despite Kendricks interest, Rihanna has also shown interest in Tom Hardy and Vince Vaughn on instagram recently.

So maybe the couple won't be the next celebrity item after all.
