Conor Coady upset for not breaking a Wolves' record

Sun 29 November 2020 | 9:55

Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has talked about Conor Coady's misfortune at missing a club record.

The skipper missed out Monday's 1-1 stalemate with

Southampton

as he quarantines himself due to Covid-19 protocols. 

He had to pull out from the current month's England team subsequent to coming into contact with somebody with Coronavirus, which means he missed his chance to surpass Phil Parkes' club record of 127 league exhibitions. 

Coady

had not missed a league game since September 2017, however, he will return for Sunday's

Premier League

outing to Arsenal. 

“He was really upset because he felt he could compete well and he was upset he wasn’t able to be on the pitch to help the team,” said Nuno.

“He was upset because he’s a competitor as he has shown before, all the game and training sessions he’s been available. It was a tough moment for him because he was away from his natural environment – here with us.

“He accepts he has another chance, it’s part of football and you always have another chance.

“It was tough news to have the moment I was informed he had to go away from the England squad.”

The Wanderers

stay without Romain Saiss after his positive Covid test and they go to the Emirates undefeated in their last three excursions. 

Nuno believes that his team can still improve after the takeoffs of Diogo Jota and Matt Doherty and requested persistence.

“It’s our job to prepare them because we believe in them, we want to transform players with real talent into good solutions for the team.

“At the same time players who have been here for several seasons have to raise their standards again and we have to improve them and they have to improve themselves.

“I’m looking forward to this period because we are going to have time to spend together. It’s up to us to make this useful time for us in terms of improving performances.”
