Lee Hendrie has been speaking to Football FanCast about Wolverhampton Wanderers star Conor Coady.
Coady was handed his England debut earlier this season, and he also has scored a goal for his country, and he now has four caps for his country, which is impressive for a player who has spent time in League One and the Championship.
The former Liverpool man has made 269 appearances for Wolves since signing for them in 2015, and he is the club’s captain, and Hendrie was full of praise for him as he appeared to pledge support towards Aston Villa defender Ezri Konsa receiving similar recognition.
He said: “Look at the players that are getting brought into the England squad these days and Conor Coady being one of them.
“Who would have thought he would have got a call–up? And too right, he’s been excellent over past seasons and this season again, so why shouldn’t Konsa be amongst that?”
Do you think Coady deserves his England recognition?
TIF Thoughts on Coady and his England appearances…
This season Coady has performed slightly better in the league than he has in the previous two seasons as he averages a 6.54 rating this season, compared with a 6.45 rating from the 2018/19 season and a 6.51 rating from the 2019/20 season.
However, despite this gradual increase Gareth Southgate has rewarded Coady with some senior England caps, and you would think that he could have a good chance of making the squad for Euro 2020.
The 28-year-old, who is now valued at £19.8 million (as per Transfermarkt), is the prime example of a player who left a huge club like Liverpool at an early stage of his career and has become a huge player elsewhere, which is great to see, and Hendrie is right to be full of praise for Coady.
