Coady apologises in advance for swearing at empty Wembley on England home debut

Conor Coady has apologised in advance if he gets caught out swearing on his big night at Wembley.

Wolves captain Coady will start for England in a back three against Wales which is another proud and huge landmark in his career.

But Coady, who made his senior debut in Denmark last month, is known for being loud on the pitch with his instructions and can be heard very clearly in an empty stadium.

Coady said: “It’s hard to watch your language when you’re in a battle and you sometimes get picked up on the mics.

“It might sound a bit daft but I think it’s important to be a bit louder than the other team, to create your own atmosphere.

“It’s tough without supporters and getting even harder. I apologise if you’ve caught me out a few times swearing if that’s what you’re talking about.

“I’m always someone that likes to talk and speak to people to help as much as possible and organise.

"In terms of being a leader, it’s pretty easy doing it at Wolves because I’m surrounded by some fantastic players who help me as well.

“In terms of having that role it helps me to get to know people in this squad and helps me to organise on the pitch as well.

"It’s something I’ll never change. I always want to help my team-mates whether it’s for Wolves or for England.”

Last time, Coady got home in the early hours of the morning from the trip to Denmark to a hug from his wife and admits it was a “bit of a blur” but this time he will cherish every moment.

“I travelled home from Denmark and got home about 3.30 in the morning,” he said. "My wife woke up and said she was proud and things like that. My kids woke me up the next morning.

“Five, three and one-year-olds came jumping on me at six o’clock so I never had that much sleep. But honestly it was incredible. Everyone was saying how proud they were.

“It was an amazing occasion for all my family and something I’ll remember for the rest of my life. My whole life I’ve dreamed of doing that for my country.

“It will be incredible. Last time was a dream come true. Every call up is a proud moment and to know all three games are at Wembley is incredible. To play there for England would be amazing.”
