Coady on why joining Huddersfield Town was an easy decision
Conor Coady has told htafc.com that there was ‘only one place he wanted to come’ when he learned of Huddersfield Town’s interest.
The one-time England Under-20 Captain today completed a permanent move from Premier League Liverpool and admitted that he jumped at the chance to play for the Terriers.
“I’m made up; when I heard Huddersfield wanted to sign me, it was immediately interesting. The last few days have been very exciting for me. I’ve been away (in the USA with Liverpool’s First Team) and I couldn’t wait to get home and get the move sorted. I’m really happy to be here.
“I spoke with Brendan Rodgers about his plans and he told me where I stood, which I thanked him for – that’s exactly what I needed.
“Huddersfield Town is a fantastic club that has produced some great players. There’s real stability here thanks to some very good people. The Club has a track record of developing players, so when I heard about the Club’s interest there was only one place I wanted to come.”
The ambition of Town appealed to Coady – and he believes those ambitions can be achieved with this squad.
“This Club has big ambitions, which is something I want to be a part of. I want to help Huddersfield Town progress up the Championship table. With the players that are here, who knows where it can take us.
“It’s a very young and athletic team here and it its clear what the Club is building. Hopefully I can come in and add to that.
“I know a lot of the Liverpudlian lads that are already at the Club; there are some really top players here. I know the Manager likes to play a style of football that focuses on possession and that is something I like to do too.
“Huddersfield play their own style of football; they move the ball around the pitch really well. That should suit my style; I like to get on the ball and move things forward. I want to create goals and score goals, but equally I can contribute defensively.
Conor could be straight into the action when AFC Bournemouth visit the John Smith’s Stadium on the opening day of the season.
“I’m really pleased we’re at home on the opening day! I’ll have my first day of training tomorrow, which I’m really excited about, and then we’ll push onto Saturday. It’s a massive game to start the season – on home soil against a Bournemouth team that performed very well last season. You look forward to the start of the season all summer and we’ll want to start as we mean to go on.”
