West Ham ace Declan Rice has suggested that it was really powerful to watch Wolves skipper Conor Coady getting the England players up for a game in the dressing room recently, as quoted by the Athletic.
The 21-year-old Hammer is now a fully established England international.
Coady, meanwhile, has earned only three international caps for the Three Lions. And at 27, the Liverpool born ace’s international caps are a long overdue reward for his fine displays for Wolves.
The defender was signed from Huddersfield in the summer of 2015 for around £2 million (BBC). He is undoubtedly one of Nuno Espirito Santo’s most important players at Molineux.
Consistent and loyal Wolves servant
Coady has made 244 appearances for Wolves. If he stays at Molineux for least another six or seven years, he will be well on his way to beating Derek Parkin’s record of 609 games for the Black Country outfit.
And West Ham star Declan Rice offered high words of praise for the Wolves ace, as quoted by the Athletic:
“I think the best two I’ve probably seen at driving the team in the changing room, talking to everyone and getting everyone up for it is Jordan Henderson and Conor Coady. It was his (Coady’s) first game for England. It was really powerful to watch how he took what he does at Wolves into a changing room, full of superstars. And he had that mentality which was so good to hear and to listen how he drives the team.”
Declan Rice has a truly great future ahead of him in the game.
Learning from people like Wolves captain Conor Coady will only help the West Ham youngster evolve into a leader of men that we all know he can become.
And as good as Rice is, maybe Coady will learn a thing or two from the Hammers youngster as well.
