All-time Career of Conor Coady
Coady joined the club in 2005 and came from the Liverpool Youth Academy. Coady was on the periphery of the first team in 2010–11, appearing twice on the substitutes’ bench but failing to play for the starting lineup. During the 2011–12 season, Coady participated in each Reserve League and NextGen Series game and scored five goals. His senior debut came on November 8, 2012, in a UEFA Europa League group stage match against Anzhi Makhachkala, despite his name being on the senior squad list and occasional calls to the senior squad starting in 2009. Conor Coady was appointed full-time captain of the Under-21 team after Andre Wisdom was promoted to a full-time senior squad position. On May 12, 2013, he made his Premier League debut in a 3-1 victory at Fulham.
On July 22, 2013, Coady announced that he had signed a six-month loan agreement with League One club Sheffield United. Coady later claimed that he had declined the opportunity to join Liverpool on their pre-season tour of Australia and the Far East in order to join up with his new club. Coady made his Blades debut in the season’s first game, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 2-1 home victory over Notts County. The following match, a League Cup first-round loss to League Two club Burton Albion, marked Coady’s first start for the club.
On November 30, 2013, Coady scored his first goal as a senior in a 1-1 draw at Leyton Orient. Coady had been in and out of the lineup throughout the first half of the season, but over the Christmas break, he started to establish a regular spot in the first team. As a result, United extended his loan period during the January transfer window and again in February to extend his stay until the end of the season. Coady returned to Anfield having played 50 games and scoring 6 goals. He continued to play regularly for the Blades for the remainder of the season, including playing on the side that lost the FA Cup semifinal 5-3 to Hull City.
Coady signed a three-year contract with Championship team Huddersfield Town on August 6, 2014, for an estimated fee of £500,000. On August 9, he entered the game as a substitute in the 4-0 loss to AFC Bournemouth. He scored his first goal for the team against Wolverhampton Wanderers on October 1 at Molineux Stadium, and Town won 3-1. He scored once more, this time in a 2-2 tie with Rotherham United.
Coady signed a three-year contract with Championship team Wolverhampton Wanderers on July 3, 2015, for an undisclosed sum that is estimated to be around £2 million. On August 9, 2016, he scored his first goal for Wolves in a 2-1 victory over Crawley Town in the first round of the EFL Cup.
Coady moved to the center of a three-man defense for Wolves under new head coach Nuno Esprito Santo beginning in the 2017–18 campaign. He served as the club captain for a large portion of the campaign and has been the captain on a permanent basis since the club’s return to the Premier League beginning in the 2018–19 campaign. He agreed to a new four-year contract in September 2017. He scored his first league goal for the team on April 21, 2018, in his 120th league appearance for Wolves, as the team won 4-0 against Bolton Wanderers and clinched the Championship.
Coady renewed his contract on February 15th, 2019 through June 2023. He was a consistent contributor for Wolves during both the 2018–19 and 2019–20 Premier League campaigns when they placed 7th overall. Additionally, he participated in every minute of Wolves’ 2019–20 Europa League season, which saw them advance to the quarterfinals. He was included in the UEFA Squad of the Season at the conclusion of the competition.
Coady signed a new five-year contract with the team on September 30, 2020, three weeks after earning his first full England cap, keeping him at Wolves through the year 2025. He missed the match against Southampton in late November because he had spoken to someone who had been diagnosed with COVID-19; this broke an 84-game streak of playing every minute (7,560 total), which was third-best for outfield players in Premier League history.
On March 2, 2021, Coady scored his first-ever Premier League goal—a header—in a 1-4 road loss to Manchester City. On January 15 of the following year, in his 298th game for the team against Southampton, he scored his first league goal at home. On February 5, 2022, he faced Norwich City at home in the FA Cup’s fourth round, marking his 300th competitive outing for Wolves. In a victory over Everton on March 13 that marked the Wolves’ 1,000th victory in the top division of football (over 67 seasons beginning in 1888) and their first league double over that opponent since 1972–73, he scored the game’s lone goal.
Loan to Everton
Coady committed to Premier League team Everton on August 8, 2022, for a season-long loan with a buyout option. Five days later, in a 2-1 loss at Aston Villa, he made his debut. He left the game late due to an injury. He scored in the Merseyside derby against his old team Liverpool on September 3 but it was disallowed for offside, resulting in a scoreless draw. On October 1st, he scored his first goal for Everton in a 2-1 away victory over Southampton.
Coady started the first four games of Sean Dyche’s tenure as manager after Frank Lampard was ousted in January 2023. He was benched after a 2-0 loss to Aston Villa at home on February 25 in favor of Michael Keane and James Tarkowski, who had both played for Burnley under Dyche.
Coady has competed for England in youth divisions from under-16 to under-20. He has 17 caps for England’s under-17 national football team. He participated in and served as captain of the England team at the 2010 UEFA European Under-17 Championship in Liechtenstein, where they won the competition and made history by becoming the country’s first team to triumph at an international competition in 17 years. After that, he participated in the 2012 UEFA European Under-19 Championship in Estonia, where England advanced to the semifinals before being eliminated by Greece. Peter Taylor, the manager of the England under-20 team, appointed him captain for the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup. On June 16, he made his team debut against Uruguay in a 3-0 victory in a preseason game. He scored against Iraq in the first match of the group stage on June 23.
Coady became the first Wolves player to start for England since Steve Bull in 1990 when Gareth Southgate called him up to the senior squad in August 2020 for the Nations League games against Iceland and Denmark. Coady started in central defense against Denmark on September 8 in a 0-0 draw. Sky Sports named Coady the game’s man of the match. Coady’s first goal for England came in his second appearance, a 3-0 friendly victory over Wales at Wembley, on October 8, 2020.
Coady was a member of the England team that finished second at UEFA Euro 2020, which took place in 2021. Even though he didn’t participate in any games, assistant manager Steve Holland named him England’s “player of the tournament” because he compared his presence in the team’s camp to that of John Terry when he played less frequently in his final years at Chelsea.
