Bruno Lage hails Wolves captain Conor Coady and makes big claim

Bruno Lage has insisted Wolves captain Conor Coady is ‘one of the best people he knows in football’.

The manager has been interviewed as part of the second series of ‘Ask Wolves’, where fans can send in their questions to key figures at the club.

The series was filmed before the final game with Liverpool, and a number of officials have spoken including Jeff Shi, Matt Jackson and Scott Sellars.

The longest interview comes from Lage, which was perhaps to be expected.

Since his arrival at Molineux, the 46-year-old has become known for being very thorough and talking in a lot of depth.

Lage spoke about a number of things and at one point had a special word for his captain.

He said of Coady: “And I’ve said this more than once, I think Coady is an impressive guy and one of the best people I know in football.

“He’s a massive player and captain and, every time, he’s ready and fit and he’s a good example for the younger ones.

“One of the good things that we can feel here, and I felt that since the first day – the environment of the players. We have good players but also good men.

“They have a good relationship between them and it was very easy for me to work with all of them during the season.

Coady is very often praised for his leadership and humanity.

The star is not only a great player, but he is extremely personable and is hugely respected by all at Molineux.

Coady’s leadership is absolutely invaluable for Wolves, as Lage showers star with praise

Coady’s amazing leadership qualities really are invaluable for Wolves.

Sometimes it can be difficult for new players to settle in at clubs.

But when you have someone like Coady in the dressing, things like that surely become much, much easier.

And the quicker a new player can settle, the better it is for the team.

And then of course, he sets an example with the way he plays, the way he trains and the way he conducts himself.

It’s easy to see why Lage has said what he’s said.
