Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Adama Traore has aimed a slight dit at Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling and Crystal Palace’ Wilfried Zaha by claiming that he doesn’t play as the same as them.
Traore who has been one of the most consistent players in the Wolves squad both in the domestic league and Europe has consistently been compared to his fellow wingers in the league but according to the player no one of the duos was close to him.
Asked which Premier League footballer was closest to him in playing style, Traore told the club’s official website: “Zaha and Sterling maybe.
“But I am not like them; more like they are like me.”
Traore has been a key member of the Wolves team as they seek to return to Europe and has scored crucial goals against Sterling’s City and Tottenham while also providing seven assists for team-mates in the Premier League.
Traore started his career in Barcelona’s famous La Masia academy, and first entered the Catalan’s ranks when he was just eight years old.
He was sold to Aston Villa for £9million ahead of the 2015-2016 season and moved to Middlesbrough, two years later where he would make 71 appearances for the club, scoring just five goals.
Santo decided to sign Traore for £18m in 2018 and the player has helped them to position six in the Premier League.
