Wolverhampton Wanderers record signing Adama Traore has had a mixed time at the Molineux following his arrival from Middlesbrough back at the start of the season.

Wolves fans have seen his raw potential and his qualities but we’ve unfortunately seen the other side of his game, as we were warned, when it comes to consistency and needing to think quicker and improve his end product.

With most of his appearances for us coming as a substitute, he does remain very involved under head coach Nuno Espirito Santo but he had an interesting interview with the E&S yesterday and in admitting his own poor performances and the fact he knows he can do ‘miles better’, he is certainly saying the right things as he looks for improvement.

“I think I can do miles better. Nuno wants me to improve so I can play as a striker and I think I can do it. The important thing for me is not just to be about pace, the important thing is improving my final end product. We all know Nuno’s tactics now, we play with two strikers, Jota and Jimenez are more of a striker than me, but Nuno trusts me because he knows I have the pace and the strength. He thinks I can play there and I think so too, but I know I need to keep working at it. I trust in the opinion of Nuno, I’ll play wherever he asks me to, it can only help me improve.”

Clearly, he’s been sat down with Nuno at some length discussing the weak points in his game and it certainly seems he knows that if he shows the improvement demanded he’ll get far more opportunities in the future.
