[Wolves captain Conor Coady has shown his frustration towards the treatment of influential team-mate Adama Traore. Tottenham ran out 2-1 winners at Molineux on Sunday afternoon] Teams are ganging up on him – it’s one player, then another player. Tottenham were clever in terms of how different players were fouling him but it’s hard from our point of view to keep seeing that happen. They (Tottenham) were spreading things out. That’s what’s disappointing from our point of view. It was obviously something they’ve said and then carried out. It’s hard to take because he beats his man every time. We speak to referees every game. They say they can’t do much about it because they are booking them but they’re not red cards. I can see where they are coming from where it’s not a red card

[Coady believes players like Traore are essential when it comes to playing in the bigger games] He’s such a handful. So powerful and quick. He’s been absolutely phenomenal so far this season. He’s unstoppable at times. Teams can’t stop him. You saw him out there against world-class players. But at the same time, it’s so frustrating for us because he’s creating so much and when he gets past players to get brought down like that it’s disappointing. He’s a fantastic footballer, he really is. He’s a phenomenal player. He works so hard in training. You can see him listening to the manager every single day. You can see he’s improving every day as well

[Wolves captain Conor Coady says VAR is ridiculous and confusing for players after his side lost 1-0 to Liverpool on Sunday] We feel massively hard done by. I can’t get my head around it. It is ridiculous. For me it is not working. Some people are saying it gets the right decision, but we’re the players on the pitch and it doesn’t feel right to me. Anthony Taylor is a great fella to speak to, but I ask a question and I don’t get an answer. We thought [Virgil] Van Dijk handballed it, but the referee tells me Van Dijk is too far away. He played the pass! VAR is affecting the game, you can hear the fans singing about it. No-one has asked us about it. It is still confusing, I can’t get my head around it, you don’t get answers on the pitch

[Wolves’ 3-2 win over Manchester City on Friday was also overshadowed by VAR reviews] It is horrible for me, it is tough to take. A lot of people say it has come to the right decision but what is it, an armpit or a toe? It is so tough to take, it has happened twice to us in the last two games against probably the best two sides in the world. In the second half we controlled game and nullified Liverpool to hardly anything but it is so disappointing that we are stood here talking about VAR rather than the the game and the way Wolves played

[Wolves captain Conor Coady has lifted the lid on how team-mate Adama Traore maintains his remarkable level of speed and strength] He could’ve played NFL, he got offered when he was younger. He doesn’t do any gym on his arms or his upper body. It’s all power work on his legs to make him more powerful and explosive. He’s rapid, he’s some player. It’s credit to him, and how proud he can be of himself, he’s been fantastic for the team, you can see in his end product and the way he tracks back and defends properly and listens to the manager’s ideas and takes it on board. It’s credit to how hard he works, he’s one of the most hard-working players I’ve seen and it’s brilliant to have him at the club

Brendan Rodgers was good to me when I was young. I had a season training with the first team at Melwood, and learning off them, that was big for me, but I always knew it was tough. I was always realistic, I was learning a lot off the first team, how to play and do things. I knew at some point I’d have to come away from Liverpool to really experience being a first-team player. It was the best decision I ever made, and Brendan Rodgers was great for that; he pushed that to send me on loan and try to improve my game. Even being on loan at Sheffield United (in 2013-14), I loved the season and it was a great club for me to go to, coming back I still knew it was going to be tough. Liverpool were always getting better, they were always improving, and the players in my position were ridiculous, but I just wanted to play football. I knew where I was at, the type of level I was at, but I just wanted to be part of a first team, playing in games which meant something, playing against men

[Every pass has been almost pre-programmed, as captain Coady explained earlier this season] It is about knowing where your runners are going to be. Everybody knows their role and how to play it
