Kieran Trippier has tipped his England teammate Conor Coady to go on and be a manager in the future.
Trippier gave the low-down on his teammates to ITV ahead of England’s Euro 2020 semi-final against Denmark.
He said that Coady and Aston Villa’s Tyrone Mings are inseparable around the camp.
And that if there’s one Three Lions star who’s going to go into management when his playing days are over, it’d be Coady.
“Mings and Coady have been unbelievable around the camp,” said Trippier. “Those two are always together. You come down for breakfast, see them – I’m surprised they’re not sharing rooms!”
“100 per cent, he’ll be a future manager,” he said of Coady. “You see him in training, his leadership, experience.
“For me, if I had to say one person in the squad will be a future manager, it’ll be Coads for sure.”
Trippier isn’t the only member of the England camp who’s full of praise for Coady.
Assistant manager Steve Holland hailed Coady’s influence around the training camp.
Gareth Southgate made a point of crediting his squad players after the win over Ukraine.
And Coady is a big part of that, having not played a minute but staying positive and keeping spirits and standards high.
