Having had to leave Barca in boredom, but Wolves striker Adama Traore is shining and becoming a nightmare for many Premier League defenders this season.
If Man City becomes the former Premier League king at the end of the 2019-2020 season, coach Pep Guardiola will surely remember Adama Traore. In both matches between Wolves and Man City, Traore scored a total of three goals and created one more to help Wolves take all six points.
Years ago, the player born in 1996 could not compete for a place on the first team Barca – the place that made Guardiola’s great name.
The way Traore plays football is reminiscent of a tank in the right corridor of Wolves – where he acts as a winger or an attacking full-back. Traore’s physique is more like an rugby player than a footballer, with a muscular upper body.
It is no coincidence that after seeing Traore’s performance this season, many FIFA players have called EA Sports producer to adjust his fitness level at 75, which is lower than… Marcus Rashford of Man Utd.
Benjamin Mendy – Man City’s most expensive left-back in the world – is among Traore’s poor victims. In the second phase match between Wolves and Man City, the French world champion hesitated to clear the ball when the score was 1-2.
Traorée quickly realized the opportunity and easily grabbed the ball from Mendy after a nudge, then the cross stretched to help Jimenez equalize the score. Earlier, Traore has raised hope for “Wolves” with an unstoppable low shot from outside the penalty area.
The performance in front of the defending team helped many neutral viewers to know more about Traore, in the context of many Premier League defenses that this 37-year-old man lost to the island.
According to Whoscored, Traore is the second most dangerous attacking player in the Premier League this season with an average score of 7.74. The only person above him was midfielder Kevin De Bruyne with a score of 7.95.
Among the 10 best Premier League players in the 2019-2020 season of WhoScored, Traore and Jack Grealish (10th, Aston Villa) are the only players not in the top three of Liverpool, Leicester City and Man. City. Traore’s outstanding strength is the speeding through people, with an average of 5.6 dribbles per game. This figure far exceeds the ratio of stars like Sadio Mane (1,2), James Maddison (1,9) or Riyad Mahrez (1,5).
