Wolves captain discusses controversial England snubs

Date published: Sunday 1st September 2019 9:15

Wolves skipper Conor Coady will remain focused despite another England snub.

The defender has been overlooked again by Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate for the Euro 2020 qualifiers with Bulgaria and Kosovo.

Aston Villa’s Tyrone Mings received his first call-up despite starting just 13 Premier League games in his career.

Coady skippered Wolves to seventh place last season and the FA Cup semi-final and still carries hope of international recognition but is not bitter at his latest absence.

“It is the pinnacle of any Englishman’s career, it really is,” said the centre-back, who played every minute of Wolves’ games last term.

“It is something where I will keep working hard and if I’m helping this club, that’s all I care about.

“The England manager will pick whatever he picks. I don’t look at it as if I am looking to be in there.

“They have picked some fantastic players who are playing in the Premier League.

“It is no problem. I love playing for Wolves and this football club.

“It doesn’t bother me whether it comes or not, it really doesn’t. I enjoy playing for this team as much as I possibly can and helping this club move forward.”
