Conor Coady has shut down a ‘daft’ Jordan Henderson question about Liverpool by reaffirming his commitment to Everton, writes the LiverpoolEcho.
Coady joined Everton from Wolves during the summer transfer window. The deal can be made permanent for an initial £4.5million next year.
However, the centre-back is a graduate of Liverpool’s Academy system, having started his playing career at Anfield. Coady was twice on Liverpool’s bench in the 2010/11 season before making his first-team debut under Brendan Rodgers in a 1-0 defeat to Anzhi Makhachkala in Russia in November 2012.
Coady eventually left Liverpool on a permanent basis during the 2014 summer transfer window, joining Huddersfield Town. However, the 29-year-old remained a Red in the years that followed.
Speaking back in September, Coady spoke of his frustration at being asked about his Liverpool past, but that didn’t stop Henderson asking whether the defender now sees himself as a ‘blue or red’ during an Lions’ Den episode.
“Conor, we are all England here,” Henderson said laughing. “But what I really want to know is. Are you blue or red?”
Coady immediately fired back, saying: “It’s so poor from him. We have banter all the time. Of course, I am playing for Everton. He knows deep down.
“So, for him to come out there and ask that question is daft. Of course, I am blue. Of course, I am blue, without a shadow of a doubt.
“For him to say that, you know what I am going to go back there sit down and have a coffee with him. I will give him a bit. That’s nowhere near good enough from the big fella. Blue all day long.”
