Adama Traore striving for Wolves improvements

Adama Traore said he's working every day to be 'the best I can be' after his impressive cameo against Manchester United.


Spaniard Traore gave one of his best performances in a Wolves shirt to help inspire Nuno Espirito Santo's team to a 1-1 draw against the Red Devils.

Traore has played as a right forward and a striker for Wolves but a switch to right wing-back looks to have paid dividends with the 23-year-old starting the season in impressive form.

He said: "We've been working on a new position for me, I'm working every day and I think if I can adapt any position, winger, wing-back or striker sometimes, I'll do my best.

"I'm working every day to be the best I can be.

"After that it's the decision of the gaffer (if I start). My mentality is to work every day.

"I tried (to do) what the gaffer said to me, speed, dribbling and I have to defend as well. I'm working every day and I have to keep going."

Wolves came from behind to claim a point thanks to a fabulous strike from Ruben Neves and then a penalty save from keeper Rui Patricio, who denied Paul Pogba.

Traore said he was satisfied with a point.

"It was a fantastic strike (by Ruben) and I'm so happy for him," he added.

"Moutinho, Neves, Dendoncker, Raul, they're always (doing this) in training.

"He has a very good strike whatever the position, I'm happy for him.

"I'm satisfied with a point, every player in the team worked so hard.

"I think every player in the team played good."
