Romain Saiss has hailed Conor Coady, after the star produced a brilliant performance against Tottenham Hotspur for Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend.

Wolves ended up losing the game 2-0 and were pretty toothless in attack once again.

It was a day of few positives really, but the performance of Coady was definitely one.

The England international made an incredible 13 clearances in the game (via Sofascore), two of those coming on his own goal-line in the first-half.

Unfortunately there was a lapse from him, Saiss and Nelson Semedo on the opening goal from Harry Kane, but that was the only blemish on what was a fantastic display from the 28-year-old.

Speaking about Coady to the club’s official website, Saiss said: “Everyone knows for so many years now what Coads means for the club and for the team.

“He’s always giving everything on the pitch, it doesn’t matter what happened, if we concede a goal or if we are winning, he just never gives up.

“He’s a good captain and shows the example to the rest of the team and sets a good example for the team and for the club.”

Coady proving himself capable

The captain’s display against Spurs was very encouraging.

Something Wolves fans talk about is his ability to play in a back four, given he is not a central defender by trade.

Many express their concern when they see him line up in a more traditional system.

But his performance in north London would suggest he is capable and with a bit more experience of the system, it may not be too much of a worry going forwards.
