Conor Coady has moved to hail Romain Saiss and Max Kilman for their form at Wolves this season.

The captain has been speaking about the 2021/22 season so far, and is delighted with how things have been going.

Bruno Lage has come in and done a solid job so far.

He is currently working with a small squad, and arguably Fosun didn’t properly back him in his first transfer window.

But he has Wolves sitting in eighth place at the end of 2021, which is pretty good going.

One of the main reasons for that is that Wolves have been very hard to beat.

Defensively the team have been sound, and Coady, Saiss and Kilman have all be fantastic as a defensive unit. And Jose Sa behind them has been nothing short of stellar.

Speaking about his teammates, Coady said (via Shropshire Star): “I know what they can do, I’ve played with those two boys for plenty of years now. It’s something that we’re trying to improve every single day, we’re trying to learn.

“Both of them have been outstanding. When you play with players over and over again, as much as we have this season, you start to feel and understand what they want to do.

“We try to do everything together on the pitch and listen to the manager as much as we can. Full credit to those two boys for how they’ve done this season because they’ve been fantastic.”

The trio have started every Premier League game so far this term, and their understanding seemingly gets better by the week.

Currently, only Manchester City (12) have conceded more goals than Wolves (14) in the league.

And impressively, Wolves are the only Premier League team yet to concede a goal from a (non-penalty) set-piece.

Coady, Saiss and Kilman have been a breath of fresh air for Wolves

The three centre-backs have been absolutely colossal for Wolves throughout 2021/22.

And it is really important they have been, because Wolves are struggling at the other end.

Hopefully as time goes on, Wolves can become more clinical in front of goal.

Lage has cracked one aspect of the team. Now it is about finding that balance.

If and when he manages to do that, Wolves will be a serious Premier League outfit.
