Wolves fans were praising centre-back Conor Coady after a stat emerged showing he has made the highest amount of successful long passes by a defender in the Premier League.
Has Adama Traore been Wolves' best player this season?
According to fan channel Talking Wolves, which shared the impressive statistic on Twitter, Coady has made a league-high 121 successful long passes from defence – and is the only defender to make treble figures in that regard.
Fans were quick to pile the plaudits onto Coady, with one particularly ecstatic he had left second-placed Virgil van Dijk well behind with a total of 87.
Wolves supporters were delighted with their captain’s feat, with some suggesting there are no better distributors in the league than the 26-year-old.
Below you can find other responses to his achievement, with plenty of positive reaction to Coady’s notable haul:
His distribution is in a different league to the others… he’s a quarterback.

There were times early on where Coady had a couple of blunders, but he’s been sublime. Every time he picks his head up, you know a majestic pass is coming🤟🏽
