It doesn’t matter who you support, it’s impossible to dislike Conor Coady.
He won the hearts of the nation for his almost child-like excitement at scoring his first England goal in the win over Wales earlier this month.
And the Wanderers captain was in some great form when speaking to Sky Sports after their 1-0 victory at Leeds on Monday night, even if he looked slightly silly for a brief moment.
He was informed that his teammate Max Kilman was given the man-of-the-match award and a puzzled Coady quickly replied: “Did he?”
That sparked a chorus of laughter in the Sky Sports studio, with Jamie Carragher pointing out that Coady may have thought he deserved the prize.
Coady then said: “He deserves it. He’s been brilliant… stop laughing and making a show of me!
“He’s been with us for years and has learnt the role inside out and he was brilliant again. He gave us some balance on that left hand side.”
Kilman made his Wolves debut back in May 2019 but has played a full 90 minutes in the club’s last two Premier League clashes.
And Coady lifted the lid on how fearless the 23-year-old is in training, before making a cheeky quip to round off the interview.
Coady added: “He loves a battle with Adama [Traore] and most people don’t go near Adama in training… he full on fights with him!
“He deserved man of the match by the way!”
