Wolves U23 captain Marques eager to follow Coady example

Wolves under-23 captain Christian Marques feels he's improved over the past 12 months.

The defender admits being involved with the first team has helped his game.

He told the club's website: "I have been training with the first-team every day since we came back from the first lockdown, being with them at every second. I learnt so much during this time, both the technical side as well as the mentality you need to be a footballer. In the games, you don't have a second to think, and every player is focused and know what they have to do. Off the pitch, the friendships I made were really good for me."

On a player he models his game on, Marques was clear.

"[Conor] Coady. I also play in the middle of the defence and I think he's a perfect example of how to play in the middle. His passing, his leadership, I try to emulate all these things. Sometimes in training I see his long passing and actually think, 'Wow!' From ten passes, probably nine of them will be perfect, and that's what I try to do now myself."
