Spirit of group makes Traore proud

Adama Traore believes Wolves’ last-gasp win in Besiktas typifies the spirit with the group.

For the third time already this season, Wolves bagged a game-changing goal in injury time, and Willy Boly’s strike in Turkey was arguably the sweetest yet as it wielded the club’s first win in the Europa League group stages. Traore and his team mates battled hard in a tough environment and the wide man was proud of the efforts of everyone involved come full-time.

On the late drama

“I think the whole team worked so hard through the game. It’s been tough, of course, I’m happy for the result, of course. It’s important to win, our first win, and after we have to keep working.

“We keep going, we keep moving and we keep pushing, that is important. We keep showing the last games that we have to fight until the end, and we do that. This is the spirit and I’m so happy for the work of the team.

“Before in previous games we showed a spirit, it doesn’t matter how the game goes, or how difficult it is, we will fight, we will keep pushing until the end, so I like the spirit of the team, this is my spirit as well, so I’m so happy and will have to keep working.”

On a dramatic final few moments

“The goal went through, it was offside, and it was disappointment, but after the second goal was amazing, but after the goal there was some game to play and we had to keep focused.

“This is what we do and I’m so happy for the performance of the team. Of course, we have to learn, we have to keep running and we have to watch the errors we did in the game, and after keep going.”

On handling the atmosphere

“It was so hard, the crowd of them was pushing as well, but after we only had two choices. Be scared or keep fighting and I think, how I am, I like the motivation and like to play in these crowds, and after I’m so happy to help the team when I’m going in and, of course, the important thing is we have the win.”
