Wolves captain Conor Coady eager for season to resume

Wolves captain Conor Coady is eager for the season to resume.

The government says it is "opening the door" for football to return in June and the Premier League has already started planning for matches to be played without supporters due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Coady told Sky Sports: "Supporters make this game. You live to play in front of supporters - the extra 10 per cent that they give you is huge on a football pitch.

"The adrenaline, the nervous energy that you get when you go out onto a football pitch all comes from that because you want to impress, you want to do well.

"But we understand that things moving forward aren't normal. We understand that to get football back on that is one of the situations that we're going to need to deal with but it's not the most ideal situation.

"Ideally you'd play in front of 32,000 at Molineux cheering for Wolves and hoping that we win. It's looking that for quite a long time that's not going to be the case and so it's up to us to adapt and move on as quickly as possible."
