Conor Coady has been speaking about new Wolves manager Bruno Lage.

The Molineux captain has yet to return to his club following England’s exploits at Euro 2020.

He and Spaniard Adama Traore were given some extra time off following the tournament, but are due to reunite with the squad very soon.

Journalist Tim Spiers recently said that the pair would be back at Compton Park this week.

With Wolves now staying an extra couple of days in Marbella, Spiers has also said it’s possible Coady and Traore could fly out.

Despite being one of the last to meet Lage, Coady has actually already spoken to Nuno Espirito Santo’s successor.

He told The Athletic: “I spoke to him on the first or second day after he was appointed, just over text.


“It was brilliant. It was great to have a chat with him like that. He seems fantastic. I speak with the boys every day in a group chat and they’re all loving the training. He’s really big on being out there every day, taking everything. I can’t wait to get in and start working with him.”

Dream team?

Coady already seems struck by Lage, despite not yet meeting him which is a big positive.

Potentially the pair could forge a very good working relationship.

Everyone knows Coady is a big talker, and it seems Lage is big on communication too.

It sounds like Lage is very hands-on and that the players are responding well to a refreshing new approach.
