Conor Coady has lavished praise on his Wolves teammate Ruben Neves, claiming the midfielder ‘has the world at his feet’.

The captain is not back with his teammates yet following his run to the Euro 2020 final with England.

He is expected to return to Compton Park, along with Adama Traore, this coming week.

Despite being away, Coady has still found time to participate in Wolves’ ongoing ‘Fantasy Football’ feature.

He’s answered a number of hypothetical questions.

Coady was asked for the Wolves player whose life he would live for one day.

He replied: “Ruben Neves. He has everything; he’s a boy wonder, he has the world at his feet, plays for Portugal, plays with Ronaldo – what a man!”

Neves is also the player Coady would have on the back of his Wolves shirt.

Coady’s end remark is certainly one that many Wolves fans will agree with.


The 24-year-old has given a lot to the club since his arrival from FC Porto in 2017.

He was instrumental in the club returning to the Premier League, and contributed massively to the runs to the FA Cup semi-final, Europa League quarter-final and two seventh-place finishes in the top-flight.

Neves will be a huge miss if he leaves

At the moment of course, Neves is being linked with an exit from Molineux.

It could well be that Wolves sell for a big fee and if that is to be the case, he should go with the fans’ blessing.

He’s been a great servant, and he does have the potential to become a top-class player at a top club in Europe.

If he does go he’ll be a massive miss, as he has shown over the years he can pretty much do everything bar beat a man for pace.

Hopefully Fosun is able to secure a really good transfer fee, and perhaps even insert a sell-on clause.
