Hugo Bueno hails 'top teammate' Adama Traore and shares what the winger does in the gym

Hugo Bueno has hailed Adama Traore as a ‘top teammate’ after assisting him against Crystal Palace for Wolves on Tuesday.

The full-back has given an interview with AS, which was published following the 2-1 defeat to the Eagles.

He got his first minutes for the first-team against Nottingham Forest in the game before.

And he was then handed his full debut against Palace – and put in a fantastic performance.

The highlight of his lively display was when he provided a superb cross to the back post for Traore to head in for his first Premier League goal of the season.

Bueno is fond of his fellow Spaniard.

The youngster has said in his interview with AS that the pair are usually the last players to leave Compton Park together.

He said (AS): “Adama is a very humble boy, very hardworking and he and I are the last to leave the sports city. He tries to help me in everything and you can talk to him about anything and he is a top teammate.

“The virtue that I like most about him is that he can change a game completely because of his explosiveness, his speed. When he has the ball, you know he can create a scoring chance.”

Traore is certainly explosive. And thankfully, he is now starting to get more minutes for Wolves to showcase that.

One of the finest sights in football is when Traore is in full flow with defenders just bouncing off him.

The power is a sight to behold, and Bueno has also revealed what the star actually does in the gym.

“The genetics are unique,” he added. “I can’t even explain it. I’ve never seen him do arm work, start doing weights, but it’s true that he has his activation program before games.

“He has to exercise his shoulders a lot because they grab him so much (the defenders) he has shoulder problems. He works a lot on that and his legs, he takes great care of himself, but his genetics are unique.”

Traore has been really good for Wolves in the last few games.

It is good to see him back in the team again, and hopefully he can keep getting minutes going forwards.

Bueno is not the first Wolves player to talk about Traore being a hard worker.

The star does put in the hours. But he now needs to increase his output. If only just a little bit, because what he brings to the team is total unique.

He is 26 now and his goals and assist numbers need to be slightly better.

Hopefully, the next permanent head coach that comes in will be able to get a proper tune out him.
