Adama Traore: I will take my opportunity at Wolves

Adama Traore has vowed to ‘take his opportunity’ when Nuno Espirito Santo hands him his first Premier League start.

The 22-year-old has only featured from the bench in England’s top flight this season after arriving in the summer.

But the Spaniard insists he is biding his time and will seize his moment if it comes.

Traore said: “I am passionate so I want to start, but I am still working 100 per cent when I come off the bench and I will wait for my opportunity to start and I will take it.

“But the most important thing is that the team wins and we perform well.”

Traore has featured in seven of Wolves’ opening eight games this season, where he has scored one goal.

He has also impressed with his dribbling skills, having made the second most successful dribbles in the league, only behind Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.

But that hasn’t impressed Nuno enough to hand him a place in his starting Xl, which hasn’t changed in eight games.

Competition for places on the wing has got even greater now Ivan Cavaleiro has returned from injury, with Diogo Jota and Helder Costa already ahead in the pecking order.


But Traore is delighted to see Cavaleiro back in action for Wolves and scoring on his Premier League debut against Southampton last month.

Traore said: “I am so happy for him because he scored. We haven’t just got quality in the forward positions but every area in the team we have quality so I am happy for the team.”

Wolves are now out of action for two weeks while the international break takes place. And Traore says fans can expect to see a lot more from him when Wolves return.

“This is what I am working on and I will do the best I can every day to do that,” he said.
