Conor Coady has today appeared on talkSPORT, and he discussed what it has been like working under Bruno Lage.

The 45-year-old has now overseen his first 10 games as manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers.

My Revenge On Ben Foster

It has been a very interesting start for the former Benfica tactician.

Results were not good in the opening weeks of the new campaign.

But the football was very good to watch and the team was creating a lot of chances.

That entertaining brand has been put on the back-burner in recent weeks, which seems to have coincided with Wolves grinding out some wins.

The general consensus appears to be that Lage is doing a decent job with what he has.

Captain Coady is certainly a fan of Nuno Espirito Santo’s successor.


He said earlier today (via Birmingham Mail): “They’re totally different. The analysis side of it is a lot different to what we’re used to but we’re all really enjoying it at the moment. Since the manager (Lage) has come in he’s been brilliant.

“The way he [Lage] goes about his analysis, his attention to detail on the training pitch, he takes absolutely everything in. He really wants to improve you not just as an individual but most importantly as a team.”

Give the man the tools he needs

Yet more praise for Lage, then.

Clearly he has had a really positive effect on the dressing room so far.

Lage has surely shown already that he is worthy of being backed by Fosun.

To get Wolves up to 10th in the Premier League with the sixth-best defensive record in the division after eight games is definitely credit-worthy.

Imagine what he could do with players of better quality.
