China trip should be embraced – Coady

12th July 2019, 10:17 by Dan McCarthy

Conor Coady has called on his Wolves team-mates to relish their pre-season trip to China ahead of the new season.

The skipper and the rest of the Wolves team will depart for China on Sunday to take part in a pre-season training camp and also play in the Premier League Asia Trophy.

The aim is to get ready for their Europa League qualifier match on July 25 against either Northern Ireland's Crusaders or Faroese outfit B36 Torshavn.

And, Coady insists his team must enjoy the intense nature of what will come ahead under Nuno in China.

"The good thing about this club is we embrace everything we do and we'll embrace China as much as possible," he said.

"It'll be a great experience. Training and the weather will be tough but we'll use it to our advantage and get as fit as possible.

"We've got two fantastic games as well. All big clubs do this so as long as we embrace it, to help us get ready for July 25, that's the most important thing."
