Highly promising youngster who is making great strides with club and country. Conor is a natural leader and captained both the reds and England through various youth levels. A strong player who is equally at home in defence or midfield, he has a fine range of passing and a blistering shot from distance.


Conor captained England to u17 European Championship success in the summer of 2010, and followed that up with an excellent season for his club, where he almost led the u18s to the league title, Rodolfo Borrell's lads missed out on the final day when they were held to a draw at home by Wolves.


Conor also impressed in the youth cup, although that campaign ended on a sour note when he was sent off after a flare up with a Manchester United player in the reds' 3-2 defeat at Anfield in the quarter finals.


Kenny Dalglish's appointment as first team boss gave all the young players a boost, and the King wasted no time in promoting some of the Academy players to train at Melwood Conor was one of the first to get the nod, and was also an unused substitute for the senior side on a couple of occasions.


2011-12 proved to be a frustrating season for Coady. Having been so close to a senior debut the previous year many expected the young scouser to be pushing for a regular place in the squad, especially after he impressed in pre-season, even getting himself on the scoresheet in a game against Guangdong FC.


It never happened though. The reserves got off to a slow start and Coady was unable to build on the progress he'd made the previous year. Conor is highly thought of at the club and Rodolfo Borrell named him as captain of the reserve side for the 2012-13 season.
