Former Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor has claimed on Twitter that Wolverhampton Wanderers central defender Conor Coady cannot handle pace.

Agbonlahor, who works as a pundit for talkSPORT, made the comment on Twitter following the 4-0 defeat to Wolves against West Ham United away from home at the London Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday evening.


The Hammers have been struggling of late, but the London club turned on the style against the Wanderers and hammered them 4-0.

Coady did not have a good game, and Agbonlahor believes that the former Liverpool defender cannot handle pace.

Stats

Against West Ham on Sunday evening, Coady had a pass accuracy of 88.9%, won one header, took 52 touches, attempted one dribble, and made two tackles, according to WhoScored.
