Wolverhampton Wanderers skipper Conor Coady came under fire during his side’s season opener away to Leicester City.
It was Bruno Lage’s first competitive game in charge of Wolves after he succeeded Nuno Espirito Santo in the dugout during the summer.
He set out his team in a 3-4-3 formation, with Coady at the heart of the back three, flanked by Max Kilman on the right and Romain Saiss on the left.
Could Coady have prevented Leicester’s opener?
Wolves fell behind just four minutes before half-time as Jamie Vardy opened his account for the season.
Ricardo Pereira, near the corner flag on the right-hand side, fired in a low cross and Vardy was able to get across the front of Coady and divert the ball into the roof of the net on the volley.
The 28-year-old Woles captain earned a SofaScore rating of 6.7 out of 10 for his performance at the King Power Stadium. He played all 90 minutes, recorded 45 touches and lost possession six times.
These Wolves fans slam Coady
A number of Wolves man on Twitter were not happy with the skipper’s display, with one irate fan saying that the defender was “stood in concrete” during the first half.
“Fuming man. Adama absolutely has to score and Coady is a disgrace”
“Coady stood in concrete as per, BUY A CB JEFF”
“Coady just let his man run across him for that goal, absolute schoolboy defending”
“How are Coady and Saiss anywhere near this squad – oh wait, we need to sign some players”
“Coady has to go man. And stop with these inverted wingers, they don’t work”
“If Mosquera doesn’t bench Coady I will lose all hope for this team”
In other news, Wolves have held talks over a deal for this midfielder.
