Conor Coady captained Wolves to a comfortable win in the FA Cup third round, but couldn’t help but poke some fun at teammate Rayan Ait-Nouri after the match on Instagram.

Wolves managed to continue their great run of form under Bruno Lage this season by progressing into the fourth round of the FA Cup after brushing aside Sheffield United 3-0 at Molineux, which may have been expected with Lage fielding a strong side.

Has Lage been a success at Wolves?





The Portuguese manager had big boots to fill this season as he was succeeding highly popular figure Nuno Espirito Santo, but handing more regular starts to players such as Max Kilman and Ait-Nouri has seen Wolves fly up the table compared to last season.

The latter massively impressed during the FA Cup clash, racking up an assist and a clean sheet, earning him an 8/10 from journalist Liam Keen, who also labelled the full-back’s assist ‘superb’ – but he may need to work on his matchday attire, as captain Coady said they ‘need to have a chat’ about his socks in a reply to Ait-Nouri’s latest Instagram post, which showed the Frenchman’s socks well below the top of his shinpads.

Ait-Nouri spent last season on loan at Wolves, but after just 16 league starts, some fans may have been forgiven for thinking he wouldn’t have a longer-term future at Molineux, but under Lage, he appears to have been given a fresh lease of life having already started eight league games, and it would have likely been more if it wasn’t for a groin injury in the last few weeks.

Coady commenting on Ait-Nouri’s socks will showcase to Wolves fans that there must be a great harmony within the squad and that can only be good for moving forward and potentially pushing for Europe.
