Responding to match footage from Wolverhampton Wanderers’ official club account, many supporters have been in awe over Conor Coady’s ability to spray diagonal long balls – with the defender showcasing his range during Wolves’ 3-2 win at Spurs last weekend.
Coady, who has started all 28 games for Wolves this season, could be seen as a crucial chess piece in Nuno Espirito Santo’s side given his composure on the ball at centre back – with only midfielder Joao Moutinho registering a higher pass success rate than the Englishman this season (WhoScored). Indeed, the 27-year-old has amassed an impressive 84.7% accuracy through his attempts to find teammates – with this footage showcasing exactly why these statistics potentially highlight his ability on the ball. As well as this, in the Europa League, Coady has averaged an even more noteworthy 91.2% pass success rate – with supporters since going on to sing his praises.
One supporter even asked if there is ‘anyone better in Europe?‘ when it comes to the long pass – meanwhile other fans simply applaud the ‘massively underrated‘ defender. Find all of their best comments down below.

How this man never gets a look in for the England squad is beyond me. Apparently Southgate thinks Michael Keane and Tyrone Mings are better 🙄

Could watch these all day. I know Frankie Munro was a footballing centre half, but Coads plays these beautifully.
