PREMIER - Wolves, Coady: "Our boss brought some brilliant ideas in"
Commenting upon latest Wolverhampton victory over West Ham, 28-year old veteran centre-back of theirs Conor Coady stated:
“It was a huge win. We spoke about it all week because West Ham are a top team, with a certain way of playing, certain players in certain positions who win games for them. It was important we stuck to our way of playing, stuck to our beliefs, and obviously came away with a good result.
It was something we worked on all week, in terms of looking at West Ham and how they set up, with bodies in the middle of the pitch, and good players in the middle of the pitch. The way the manager wants to play, we want to move the ball quick, one, two, three touches, as quick as we possibly can.
You look at Raul Jimenez’s movement, actually going in, leaving the defenders in there, and taking a step back – it’s a great goal from Raul and he deserves it.
The manager’s been brilliant since he came in. He’s got new ideas, new ways of playing, but we’re kind of sticking to what we know in terms of the system. I think a lot of people think Wolves are playing three at the back so it’s exactly the same, but it’s totally different, we’ve all had to change the way we do things and the way we want to play.
The boys up top have been brilliant because we’re trying to play a bit more inside now, and we’re trying to move the ball a little bit quicker, have more possession of the ball, and the gaffer’s been brilliant with it every day in training”.
