Liverpool fan and Wolves star Conor Coady out to stop Jurgen Klopp's boys

Wolves’ Scouse skipper Conor Coady is a lifelong Red and made two first team appearances for his beloved Liverpool after graduating from the Anfield club’s famous Academy.

But tonight Coady, who has been Kop crazy since he was a kid, would rather be dead than Red as he tries to inflict a first Premier defeat of the season on Jurgen Klopp’s table-toppers.

The 25-year-old defender, who will try to tame Mo Salah and his Merseyside mates tonight, said:“They’re a fantastic club and I still follow them and see how they’re getting on with their results.

“But I want to beat them more than ever with Wolves, it’s as simple as that. I love playing for this club and no matter who we’re playing against I want to win. That doesn’t change on Friday.

“I grew up supporting them and I still follow their results to see how they’re getting on but I’d give anything to take six points off them.

"My two boys, Henri and Freddie don’t really know much about Liverpool! They’ve got Wolves kits and come to all the games. They sing the songs, it’s great. My boys are obsessed with Ruben Neves, they sing his song and all kinds. They love it!”

Coady’s ideal scenario would be for Liverpool to win the title and then look back and wonder how they lost SIX points to Wolves!

He said: “I think they’ve got a good chance of winning the league and the way they’ve started is really good.

“But we want to try to stop that from a Wolves point of view, it’s as simple as that. God, they’ve got loads of strengths. They haven’t got many weaknesses, really. But we’ve got strengths as well and we’ll be looking at ourselves, looking and how they play and trying to learn from that.

"They’re in with a good shout. The way them and Man City have started is really interesting so it’ll be an interesting battle.”

However Wolves have already taken points from Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal this season and Nuno Espirito Santo’s Premier newcomers beat Chelsea at Molineux a fortnight ago to underline their growing confidence in the top flight.

Saturday’s home win over Bournemouth means they go into tonight’s game sitting pretty in seventh place – the best of the rest if you take away the big six traditional leading clubs.

“It’s incredible but it’s where we want to be and where this club deserves to be,” said Coady, whose form has seen him mentioned as a possible England contender this season.

“We go into games now making sure we know what we need to get the win and that doesn’t change because it’s Liverpool who are visiting. We don’t tend to go into games with fear these days. We look at it our own way and we think we can win every game no matter who we’re playing against. That won’t change for this game.”

Coady was part of Paul Lambert’s Wolves side who stunned Liverpool and Klopp two seasons ago when they were a lowly Championship side – yet went to Anfield and won 2-1.

Lambo’s strugglers took less than one minute to open the scoring, were two-up by half-time and weathered a late Liverpool fightback to cruise into the fifth round of the FA Cup at Klopp’s expense.

The former Kop kid admits he will never forget the thrill of winning at Anfield in his first competitive game there – even if it was against his heroes.

Liverpool legend Neil Ruddock ‘sorry’ for double leg-breaking tackle on Andy Cole

NEIL 'RAZOR' RUDDOCK has apologised to Andy Cole after breaking both of his legs in 1996 – and says his claims he did it deliberately were misquoted and only a joke.

The former Liverpool defender says he has received death threats on social media and had his house egged after an interview, filmed eight years ago, resurfaced around Halloween.

During a Liverpool vs Manchester United reserves game in 1996, Cole was left with two fractured legs and spent three months on the sidelines.

In the 2010 interview Ruddock said: "I didn’t mean to break both of his legs if I’m honest… I only meant to break one."

Coady said: “What an unbelievable feeling that was. I wanted to win and knock them out of the cup, it was as simple as that.

"It was a totally different club and team back then but we managed to do it, we’re on a good run and hopefully we can enjoy Friday night’s game under the lights at Molineux.

“We’re a different team now and we play a different way, and we will take that into this game full of confidence and hopefully get a win. We're ready!"
