Nuno’s reaction to Adama Traoré’s goal

Adama Traoré was the main protagonist of the pass of his team, Wolves, to the round of 32 of the FA Cup last Friday, after beating Crystal Palace 1-0. Doubly protagonist: the Spanish winger put an end to a scoring drought that lasted 11 months. Nuno Espirito Santo, Adama’s coach at Wolves, said it was “a special goal from a special player.”


Adama Traoré had not scored for Wolves since February 27, 2020, when the former Barcelona player scored a goal against Espanyol in the second leg of the Europa League round of 32.

“I’m very happy because I think this goal will strengthen their confidence,” said Nuno about the Spanish international. “He’s been trying in training and that’s why I’m so happy. We must be patient with everyone. It has been a tough season for everyone and that affects. Adama is a versatile player, he can play in a couple of positions and whenever he is on the pitch he has an impact on the game ”.

Adama Traoré scored on Friday against Crystal Palace with a shot from the edge of the area in the 35th minute and thus decided the match in favor of Wolves, who in the Premier now occupy 13th position. Roy Hodgson’s Palace is precisely 14th, both tied at 22 points.
