Ex-Wolves stalwart Edwards lauds strong leader Coady

Former Wolves stalwart Dave Edwards has praised Conor Coady for his leadership skills.

The former Liverpool man has been a mainstay for Wolves since Nuno took over the dugout.

Edwards said: "Conor has always been a leader. He's so vocal – such a big talker.

"He's like that every single day in the dressing room, and such a happy guy as well, always having a smile on his face.

"That raises the energy in training and around the place, even when you've lost a game.

"Conor was the natural choice for Nuno, and he has revelled in the centre of defence.

"It was a natural option. He can see the pitch from there and organise.

"He has been a leader since he was a teenager, captaining England at youth level. I just hope he gets a chance at senior level with England now."
