Traore working hard on wing-back role

Adama Traore was pleased with the impact he had on the Wolves’ Premier League draw with Manchester United after replacing Matt Doherty from the bench mid-way through the match.

The pacey right wing-back, who admits he is still learning his new position, played a pivotal role in helping Wolves come out of the blocks quickly in the second-half to put United under pressure and force the equaliser from a stunning Ruben Neves strike from 22-yards.

On earning a point against United

“It was a good point for us because every player in the team worked so hard. Of course, I think it’s better if we win, but it’s a good point and I’m happy.

“But we have to keep working, keep learning things and what I tried to do was give my best.

“I think the mentality that we have is to approach every game the same way and, like the gaffer said before the game, we have to compete and that is what we do.”

On making an impact from the bench

“I’ve tried to do what the gaffer says to me all the time. I just managed to keep going forward, use my skills and my speed, but I have to defend as well.

“It’s a new position for me, I am now playing wing-back, and I’m working hard every day to adapt and be the best I can be.”

On Ruben Neves’ screamer

“It was a great goal, but we know what we have; we have great players and it was a fantastic strike, I’m so happy for him.”
