Conor Coady brilliantly brushed off a joke from Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher about replacing the injured Virgil van Dijk after Wolverhampton Wanderers’ win over Leeds United. Wolves captain Coady stepped up for media duties after the game and Carragher decided to go on the wind up. Conor Coady, who is an avid Liverpool supporter having climbed through the ranks at Melwood, wasn’t falling for it.
Jamie Carragher said “Obviously you won’t be aware as you’re playing tonight but Jurgen Klopp has had his Champions League press conference and he’s mentioned you and two other players who could be a replacement for Virgil van Dijk. Would that come into your thinking?
Conor Coady said “I can’t believe you’ve just put this on me here. Not at all, I love playing for this football club. We’ve just beat Leeds in an amazing game – so no! You know what I’m like mate, I wouldn’t think of anything like that!”
Carragher was of course joking but Coady wasn’t to know and laughed it off live on Sky Sports. Raul Jimenez bagged the winner at Elland Road to clinch Wolves’ third win from their opening five Premier League matches.
