'Tank' Adama Traore hailed by Wolves skipper

Conor Coady has hailed the impact of ‘tank’ Adama Traore.


Traore helped inspire Wolves to a 1-1 draw against Manchester United on Monday after being introduced at half-time.

Wolves earned a point thanks to Ruben Neves’ magical strike and Rui Patricio’s penalty save, but Traore was arguably their best player in the second half.

Skipper Coady said of the Spaniard: “Every time he plays he is exciting and gets people on the edge of their seats.

“You heard the crowd as soon as the ball goes to him and when he turns around to play it back because that is what he has to do sometimes but the crowd get a little disappointed.

“He is exciting for us as players and when he came on he made a real impact and was fantastic and something we needed more and more.

“He benefits from listening and learning. He is a fantastic lad who wants to learn everyday and be the best he can be.

“He is a fit boy, he is a tank. He listens to the manager every single day and tries to improve which is credit to him.”
