Conor Coady again shows he's one of the best people in football as he and Wolves greet young fan River

Wolves fans were celebrating on Sunday, after the club beat Everton 1-0 at Goodison Park.

That was the captain’s third goal of the season so far, and the England international really seems to have worked on becoming a threat in the opposition box.

After scoring Coady then put in a typically solid performance at the back, helping Wolves to keep an 11th league clean sheet.

It was a big result after Wolves also beat Watford last Thursday, and hopefully the players will have taken huge confidence.

Following the game, there have been some videos doing the rounds on social media of the players giving their shirts to young fan River.

River, 7, was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, a cancerous tumor, and is on an intense course of chemotherapy.

He will then have to have radiation on his eye, which could potentially take partial sight or full sight of his eye.

The courageous youngster is on a journey to spread the love of football, and on Sunday he was at Goodison Park.

The Riverthechamp Twitter account has shared videos of some of the Wolves players greeting River at the end of the game on Sunday.

Willy Boly, Ruben Neves and Leander Dendoncker all gave their shirts and then match-winner Coady arrived on the scene. He picked River up and lapped up the celebrations with him with the fans nearby.

Manager Bruno Lage also spent some time with River.

Once again, the Wolves players – and Coady especially – have shown themselves to be just brilliant human beings.

It is stated on River’s GoFundMe page that he sadly has to miss out on so much of his young life due to endless hospital visits.

So for the players to take the time to make him feel special is really heartwarming.

And it’s nothing less than anyone would expect of Coady, who recently also helped young Wolves fan Logan who had been struggling with bullying at school.
