BIG CHAR­AC­TER Wolves skip­per and Eng­land new boy Conor Coady

CONOR COADY has al­ready made his mark with Eng­land. Gareth South­gate re­vealed the Wolves cap­tain was in­vited to join his lead­er­ship group, set up to give Three Lions play­ers a voice. Harry Kane, Jor­dan Hen­der­son, Harry Maguire and Ra­heem Sterling are reg­u­lar mem­bers, but with Sterling miss­ing through in­jury, Coady was in­vited to step up – a sign of his grow­ing im­por­tance to the squad.

“His per­for­mance against Den­mark and the way he and Ty­rone Mings or­gan­ised the de­fence from the back re­ally helped to keep us in that game,” said South­gate. “They showed tremen­dous char­ac­ter and re­silience to lead from that po­si­tion.” Coady is vo­cal on the pitch and as the PFA rep at Wolves was in­volved in Project Restart talks.
