Wolverhampton Wanderers fans arguably saw Adama Traore’s best peformance for the club to date against Manchester United on Monday night.
The winger was brought on at half-time in place of Matt Doherty, and the Spaniard really changed the game in the hosts’ favour.
The £18 million signing from Middlesbrough (BBC Sport) featured as a wing-back with Nuno Espirito Santo keeping his usual system, and the star’s pace gave the United left side real problems.
Traore would help his team push further up the pitch, and he put in a few good crosses at Molineux.
It was a very encouraging display from the 23-year-old, who has definitely had his critics during his time at the club so far.
Traore showed that he definitely has the potential to be a regular.
Following on from his solid 45-minute showing, Traore now needs to work towards shaking off his tag of being a mere impact sub for the club.
The £43,000-a-week ace (Spotrac) is blessed with amazing physical attributes that a lot of players could only dream of.
If he can work on his decision making and end product, there is no reason why he can’t play much more than he did last term.
Wolves’ system perhaps doesn’t favour him (he is a natural winger and Santo deploys wing-backs), but he has the tools to at least give Matt Doherty a run for his money.
