Adama Traore not worried about Wolves

New boy Adama Traore thinks Wolves will be flying once they get their first win – and is impressed with what he's found at the club.


The club record £18million man made his Wolves bow as a half time substitute during Saturday's 2-0 defeat to Leicester City.

Traore impressed with a series of dazzling runs and could be handed his full debut against Manchester City this weekend.

He said: "I'm happy (to play my) first game and help the team. It wasn't the result we wanted but we need to keep working.

"The team is ready and I believe in the team 100 per cent. We played so good in the first half, we had chances, we'll keep listening to what Nuno says and keep working.

"He just said we keep our identity and keep following what he says. We'll work for the manager and everything will be good."

"I tried to help the team the best way I can. I will keep doing that.

"I can help more, I can do better. I enjoyed myself and I'm happy to be back on the pitch."

Traore moved from Championship side Middlesbrough just before the transfer window closed earlier this month.


He's pleased with the quality he's seen from his team mates.

"Wolves, the players, the team, everyone is amazing. We'll have very good times and very good moments."

"I'm looking forward to (my first home match). I'm happy to play, we didn't win and it's not the best way for my first game but we need to pick up the positive things, keep going and everything will be fine.

"Nuno said I need to understand how the team plays and put (in) how I am, my power, my velocity, my one v one, everything I can. I learned a lot of things in the game. I hope we'll be better."


"The (Leicester) manager maybe knows me, they know how I play and this is what they (double marked me).

"I think I need to keep working and do what the manager says and be better and help the team the best way I can."

"I'm looking forward to the Premier League challenge and to the first win. After that first win everything will be ok."
