Darren Bent raved about Wolves defender Willy Boly and suggested that Conor Coady was a completely different player when not featuring alongside his 28-year-old teammate.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former England international revealed that he thought Coady looks like a central midfielder playing out of position when Boly isn’t next to him.
Boly has featured 14 times for Wolves this season across all competitions and has registered one goal as well as one assist in the process.
Bent aside from raving about Boly because of the impact he has on Coady also acknowledged the 28-year-old’s abilities by questioning why no other team had checked him out.
When asked how much of a rock Boly has been for Wolves in recent seasons, Bent told Football Insider: “Yeah when he’s been out the team, Conor Coady looks completely different.
“To be fair to Coady, he has done well, but when Boly is not next to him, he looks like a central midfielder playing as a centre-half, yet when Boly is next to him, he looks solid, composed and for me, I have wondered why no one has looked at him and think we’ll take a chance on him.”
Boly has been at Wolves since July 2017 as he joined the club on loan from Portuguese giants FC Porto before making the move to Molineux permanent in July 2018.
The French centre-back during his time with the club has made 92 appearances and is contracted to stay with Wolves until 2021.
