Max Kilman hails Conor Coady after helping him rise to prominence at Wolves

Wolves defender Max Kilman has hailed the influence of Conor Coady on him, following his recent rise to prominence at the club.

Kilman has now established himself as a regular starter under Nuno Espirito Santo, after the manager drafted him in against Fulham last month.

Kilman grabbed his opportunity with both hands, and is now on a four-game starting streak.

Arguably his finest display came against Leeds United, but the 23-year-old has been solid in all his outings so far this season.

It’s been an exciting period for Kilman, who was brought to the club in 2018 from Maidenhead United, and the star has moved to thank Wolves captain Coady for taking him under his wing.

He said (Express & Star): “Coads is a fantastic leader. He knows the right time to give you a bit of encouragement, and when he needs to make you concentrate a bit more on the game.

“He’s a fantastic leader who has helped me so much along with some other players.”

Kilman always stood great chance with Coady influence

Kilman’s development is very exciting, and it is no surprise to learn that Coady has been helping him.

It is yet more evidence of the amazing leadership skills Coady has, and Wolves are now massively benefitting from the fact he took the time look out for Kilman.
