Conor Coady waxes lyrical about Bruno Lage during Match of the Day 2 appearance

Wolves captain Conor Coady sang the praises of Bruno Lage on Match of the Day 2 last night.

The star appeared as a special guest on the programme to provide punditry and analysis for the Sunday games.

The 28-year-old was on hand to cast his eye over the Tottenham Hotspur vs Leeds United game and the Manchester City vs Everton clash.

Fans seemed to really enjoy Coady’s views about things.

Being a current Premier League player, he was obviously able to provide unique points of view.

After the analysis of the Sunday games, talk turned to Wolves and Coady spoke a bit about the manager’s impact.

Jermaine Jenas brought up Wolves’ change of style, to which Coady said: “It’s brilliant and it’s full credit to the manager. He’s been brilliant since he came in.

“He’s got new ideas and new ways of playing, but kind of sticking to what we know as well in terms of system.

“We’re trying to play more inside now, we’re trying to move the ball a little bit quicker and have a bit more possession. The gaffer has been brilliant with it every day in training.”

Coady added that the transition has not been easy for the players.

Nice to see Coady praising Lage

It was good to see Coady heaping the praise on Lage, who probably deserves a bit more recognition for the job he has been doing at Molineux.

Obviously lots of people tune in to Match of the Day and will have now heard a bit about how Lage is doing.

Wolves have gone under the radar a little bit so far this season.

Perhaps the club’s games having not really been filled with goals has meant later appearances in the running order.

As a result, analysis of Wolves has been fairly minimal so far this season.

But with Wolves now up to sixth, people will likely be paying closer attention. Not that Lage and the players will be too bothered about that.
