Wolves skipper Coady: I'm indebted to Nuno and this club

Wolves captain and central defender Conor Coady says that he owes a lot to boss Nuno Espirito Santo.

Coady has been an ever present for Wolves in the past couple of seasons as they made such a huge impression on the Premier League.

And the defender is thankful to Nuno for giving him a chance to play so often in the top division.

Asked about that on Sky Sports, he said: "I've found myself at a fantastic club, where I've been lucky enough that a manager has come in like he has and obviously helped me and pushed me on.

"It's a big thing when a manager comes in, you don't know whether they are going to like you or not – especially with the manager coming into our club at the time, having managed in the Champions League.

"It was important I learned as much as possible from him, and I made that decision quite early that I wanted to improve.

"That was a massive part of it. I owe a lot to Wolves as they have been brilliant to me over the years.

"I have played a lot of games and the faith they have shown in me, trying to improve me and make me better, I owe an awful lot to them. I was lucky the manager that came in wanted to improve me."
