Wolves captain Conor Coady has been given a glowing endorsement this week after lifelong supporter and football journalist Jacqui Oatley spoke about the stalwart on social media.
Oatley, who now hosts Sky Sports’ Sunday Supplement and features on The Athletic’s podcast with Tim Spiers, believes the Old Gold skipper is the “heartbeat” of the club – both on and off the pitch.
One of those unseen factors by the outside world. One player (Conor Coady) stopping to give interviews after every single game while his team-mates consistently decline to talk to reporters for whatever reason. Coady really is the heartbeat of that club. #wwfc https://t.co/Nyk6xNOZfu

Being a reporter, Oatley is privy to access that fans aren’t so her comments certainly resonate well and only go to show the character of Wolves’ leader.
Win, draw or lose, the 27-year-old is on hand to speak about the performance and his teammates. He isn’t one to shirk away from his responsibilities.
The midfielder-turned-defender has become the first name on the teamsheet under Nuno Santo at Molineux, where he has now amassed 220 appearances.
This is even emphasised by the fact that he has played every single minute of their last 100 league matches, which stretches back to their time in the Championship.
On the achievement, Coady said: “The pride I have leading this club, walking out with this football club every single game, is immense.”
Wolves clearly have one hell of a captain at their disposal.
