Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers highlights threat of Wolves attacker Adama Traore

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has praised Wolverhampton Wanderers attacker, as he prepares his side for a trip to Molineux.

Wolves host Leicester on Friday night in the Premier League, and it’s ninth against third in the division standings.

The Midlands pair played out a goalless draw at the King Power Stadium in the previous league meeting back in August and both teams need the points for their respective European bids.

Rodgers has pinpointed the threat that Wolves speed machine Traore is going to pose to his team and believes he’s improved massively.

The 24-year-old winger possess lighting pace that is too much for any defender to handle and he’s added end product to his game.


“He’s a very dangerous player. He’s got incredible power and speed. He’s improved his end product. When he gets into the final third, he can create,” Rodgers said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

TBR’s View:

Traore is quite clearly one of the standout players that Leicester will be trying to stop on Friday and it could be a tough night’s work for England left-back Ben Chilwell.

The Spanish right-winger has certainly taken his game up a level recently and Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo deserves immense credit for standing by him.

He’s played in 36 games across all competitions this season, scoring five goals and supplying 10 assists in return.

Traore is part of an exciting Wolves attack that on its day can be lethal and they have a tendency to raise their game against teams around the top end of the Premier League table.
