Lots of fans have paid their respect to skipper Conor Coady after he went on Monday Night Football on Sky Sports.
The 26-year-old was acting as a pundit alongside Jamie Carragher for the Crystal Palace vs Brighton match at Selhurst Park.
Considering this was a personal debut as a pundit, he looked to be a complete natural on television, building a very good rapport with fellow his Liverpudlian as they discussed the match as well as a number of other key talking points.
David Jones quizzed him on a matter of topics, including his personal development from a midfielder to a defender, as well as how he would react if a player had been taken off after being brought on (like Moise Kean did against Manchester United). It goes without saying that he did the club proud and gave off a very impressive representation of himself, both in terms of his footballing intelligence and in terms of being an amiable and fun person.
Could you see Conor Coady being a manager in the future?
Definitely, he would be a great coach
Too early to tell
Coaching is not for Conor
After the centre half appeared on television, Tim Spiers from the Athletic praised his performance on Twitter – as you can read below – to which many fans responded with their personal opinions. Lots praised his media performance saying that he has a future in punditry, while others suggested he could even go into management.

he’s a genuinely nice guy, multiple times I’ve seen him going out of his way to talk to kids or fans (even some pretty annoying ones) with nobody around/when he didn’t have to, he’s a credit to them

Agreed. Excellent talker and ambassador. A long way off for him but can see him going into management. Certainly has a level head and talks like a boss now…. and he has the best mentor in Nuno. #wwfc

a career in punditry is almost a given

Coady will be back on the pitch come the weekend and he has an important match to captain. With Wolves dropping points and some of the bigger sides around them gaining pace – such as Spurs and Manchester United – they have a big game away at Norwich City.
Three points at Carrow Road is crucial as after that they face both Manchester City and Liverpool in quick succession, so they will want to make sure they are three points better off before they face those two European giants.
