Wolves captain Conor Coady has conducted an interview with England’s official website, where he was asked which area of his game he wants to improve.

He also commented on the use of VAR in English football, which is a topic which has sparked debate among fans up and down the country.

Coady said he does not necessarily have an issue with VAR, but the current utilisation of it frustrates him.

When asked which area of his game he wants to improve, Coady said: “My left foot, 100 per cent.

“I used to always watch John Terry growing up and a big part of my game is obviously passing the ball and trying to switch the play, and he was someone who could switch the play with both feet and I loved it.

“It was effortless to him. He could take a touch coming from the right and spray it with his left foot and it was the same on the other side and you never knew which was his strongest foot.”

When asked if there was one thing he would change about football, he replied: “VAR! No, it is not necessarily VAR. It is how it is being used. VAR is a tough one to take as a footballer and it is as a supporter as well, as I watch games as a fan as well.”

Coady had a slightly slow start to the season, perhaps suffering a hangover from England’s summer exploits at Euro 2020.

But he is in absolutely fine form, and some have suggested he is playing better than he ever has before, including former Molineux man David Edwards.

Coady himself does not necessarily agree, but there is no doubt he is performing well and is enjoying life under Bruno Lage, which should be enough to keep him in the England squad, even if he does not improve his passing with his weaker foot.
