Get To Know: Conor David Coady
Team: Regular Reserves / Sporadic First
Place of Birth: Liverpool
Date of Birth: 25 February, 1993
Position: Defensive Midfielder/ Defender
Liverpool have always thrived on breeding young Scousers into international footballing superstars. With the likes of Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher, the club’s Academy has been established as one of the best.
As of recent, we have noticed some of the younger Scousers making their way up the rankings. Hopefully for Conor Coady, this season will be his time to shine.
Born in Merseyside, Coady was born with a Liverbird upon his chest and a fervent love for this club equal to any other Kopite. Having arrived at the academy merely at the age of 13, he’s already shown his potential those who have had the privilege of watching him grow for nearly a decade at the club.
Playing as both a CB and a Defensive Midfielder, Conor Coady has been greatly complimented on his tackling, passing, and crossing as well as being lauded on his dominating physical presence on the pitch. Whilst on loan for Sheffield United this past season, Coady played more of a central role and found great success bagging 5 goals and even making an appearance at Wembley for an FA Cup semi-final - though losing to Hull.
Several comments have been made regarding Coady as the next Steven Gerrard… and having already worn the Captain’s armband for LFC U21’s, England U17 and Engalnd U20, he already has the makings of being a great leader - just like Stevie.
stevengerrard: I would like to announce that after a 14 year England career with many highs and lows, I have decided to retire from International Football as of today. I have loved every minute of my time wearing the famous white shirt and have been immensely proud to do so. x
