Wolves defender Coady on captaincy style: I'm a talker

Wolves centre-back Conor Coady has opened on his captaincy style.

The 27-year-old has been an integral member of Wolves' playing squad over the past few seasons, having played every minute of their last 102 games.

Speaking on his captaincy style, Coady told the Express & Star: "I am a talker.

"As a captain, I'm not a shouter and bawler, I would never dig people out.

"I'm there to help and try to encourage because I'm the first to look at myself when things aren't going well. Before a game it's about trying to motivate and trying to create a bit of an atmosphere.

"All the lads realise how important the Premier League is, and every game is, but it's important to create a feeling within the dressing room that we're going to war – that's the biggest thing now."
