Pedro Neto has lavished praise on Wolverhampton Wanderers captain Conor Coady, joking it’s ‘impossible’ for anyone to shout more than he does

The winger has sat down to give a brilliant in-depth interview with The Athletic, in which he discusses things such as living with his parents, learning from Diogo Jota and being congratulated by Cristiano Ronaldo.

But Neto also put in a good word about Coady, who has not had his best season so far, most fans would say.

Coady hasn’t quite been ever-present for Wolves this time around.

He was forced to miss the game against Southampton back in November due to having to quarantine, and was actually substituted off against West Bromwich Albion.

 

The changes to the formation have seen him look uncomfortable at times, but Neto has lauded the 27-year-old for what he brings to the team.

He said: “We have some very important players. Coady, it’s impossible for someone to shout more than him.

“We need a guy like this. If we’re losing he’ll always be encouraging and lifting us. An incredible guy.

“In quarantine he always called me for FaceTime, it was so good to hear his voice. To have his leadership is unbelievable.”

Coady is a sensational captain

This is just the latest example of Coady’s incredible leadership qualities.

Of course he isn’t the world’s best defender (although he has done so well in recent years in that sweeper centre-half role) but he is so invaluable for Wolves.

Having someone so humble and committed to helping others goes a long way in a dressing room, and the day the man leaves Molineux will be a very tough moment for all.
