Adama Traore records most successful dribbles in just 45 minutes on Wolves Debut

The youngster looked electric in his second half cameo this weekend.

It was a first Wolves appearance for £18 million club record signing Adam Traore this weekend, with the 22-year-old instantly living up to his exciting reputation.

The Midlands outfit would perhaps consider themselves unfortunate as they fell to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of 10-man Leicester City, but a debut performance for Traore was a highlight in an otherwise disappointing afternoon.

Against Leicester he displayed his ability to beat his man with ease, drifting in and out of opposing defenders as he ran down the right flank.

Only featuring in the second half against the Foxes, Traore completed seven dribbles in total while he completed a match-best two key passes.


In just 45 minutes, he completed more dribbles than any other player in an English top flight game so far this season, while he also tops the rankings across Europe.

It is fair to say the former Middlesbrough man would be one of the most dangerous players in the Premier League if he were able to improve on his decision making in the final third.

Despite Wolves’ slow start to the Premier League season, one thing that is guaranteed is the excitement the powerful winger will provide this season.
