Club-record signing Silva is currently enjoying a summer break after a busy first season in English football. He came in for criticism along the way, but Coady was always there for advice and encouragement.
Silva told the Express & Star: “Sometimes because he speaks too quickly, I say 'Conor you have to relax because I'm Portuguese, I don't understand a lot so you have to go slow'.
“I have to say, for me, he is the best captain. He helps a lot, not only me, but the team.
“He is a guy who you goes with you and speaks with you when you have to improve.
“When you have a good game he will say you have to continue, don't relax and go again. He is an amazing guy."
