Conor Coady described leading Wolves in the Premier League as an honour and the club captain has vowed to help the club progress further after signing a fresh deal at Molineux.
Coady, the club’s second longest-serving player, has committed the next four seasons to Wolves, where he’s loved the previous three-and-a-half years. A popular personality in the dressing room and favourite in the stands, Coady has developed at a sensational rate alongside the club and the future is bright for Wolves, with the 25-year-old playing a starring role.
On securing his future
“It’s been quite quick to be honest. Everybody knows how much I love being here. As soon as the club came to me and told me about the situation I wanted to get something signed as soon as possible. I love coming here every day, I love coming in to train, I love playing games, I love being part of this football club. To get it done and be sorted is fantastic, it’s a great for me and my family to be part of this football club for four more years.
“You’ve got to enjoy yourself every single day and you can’t not enjoy yourself coming into this place, learning from the manager every single day and learning from the players. I’ve said it plenty of times before, how good the football club. It’s a an absolutely huge football club and I love being a part of it, it’s really special.”
On the honour of captaincy
“It’s amazing. To captain this football club is huge, I’m privileged every time I wear the armband. To wear the armband and lead this club is a really special feeling and I love every minute of it. To finally get something sorted, another four years at this football club, is a special thing for me and my family because they love me being part of this as well. It’s huge and hopefully we can keep on pushing forward.”
On club and player development
“Next year is five years I’ve been here now, so it’s big. The football club has changed a lot in the last few years. The manager and the owners have a big part to play in it and obviously the players that have been brought in. As long as I can keep on learning, keep on getting better it will be OK, but the last couple of years have been immense for the football club and I’ve loved every minute of it.
“I’ve grown up a lot in terms of when I first came here to now. I’ve matured, I understand the game a lot more tactically and the manager has helped me with that. He’s helped me since he’s came to the club in terms of reading the game, knowing how he wants to play and how we wants to do things. I’ve had to make sure I’ve grown with the club along the way.”
On exciting ambitions
“As a footballer, you always get feelings in terms of the competition we’re going into on Sunday, it’s huge a competition and everybody at the football club wants to do well in it, but at the same time, when you listen to the manager and how he talks, you buy into it and understand his ways of thinking. The way this football club has moved forward the last couple of years has been special, but we need to make sure as players that we do the best we can to improve this football club.”
On playing multiple positions
“I think this is me now. I can’t see me playing many more positions and I love playing it, it’s a really fantastic position. You see everything. What makes it easier is the players I’m playing around, I’ve got some brilliant, clever footballers around me, which improve me every single day. The way they’ve transformed this football club has been special and I’m proud to be a part.”
On targets for the future
“It’s to get better. We’ve said it all along, we all know what the owners say, the club have massive ambitions and we’re lucky to be a part of that. It’s a sensational football club and as players we need to help this club grow. Whoever comes in or goes out, it doesn’t matter, as long as you’re here, you need to help this football club grown. We’ve done it for the last couple of years and it’s important we do it for the next couple of years.”
