Coady is one of Wolves' most important players for 40 years, says Edwards

Conor Coady’s former Wolves teammate David Edwards has hailed the Molineux captain as one of the club’s most vital players for 40 years.

In the Express and Star, Edwards wrote that the 29-year-old embodies everything good about the club and its journey.

Of course, Coady got the winner against Everton on Sunday, which must have been a sweet moment for a boyhood Liverpool fan.

“What a big moment it was for Conor Coady back in Liverpool at Goodison Park on Sunday. A glancing header I’d like to think he learnt from me! I messaged him afterwards to say as much – it’s not as easy as it looks, it was a brilliant header.

“He is a top human being, look at how he picked the young fan up after the Everton game to celebrate. He’s such a likeable person with empathy and positivity.

“In my opinion he’s one of the most important players to wear a Wolves shirt in the last 30 or 40 years because of what he brings to the city – he’s more than a football player. He embodies everything.”

Coady is also now a fixture in the England squad, which is an important thing for Wolves and a marker of their progression.

The latest squad is out this week and Coady will expect to be included for the fixtures against Switzerland and the Ivory Coast.

Max Kilman may well join him after an impressive season where he must have caught the eye of Gareth Southgate, who was at the recent clash with Crystal Palace.
