Nuno Espirito Santo hailed the evolution of Adama Traore’s game ahead of the clash with Tottenham.
Traore came off the bench to change the game against Brighton on Sunday afternoon.
Wolves were 1-0 down when he came on and ended up winning 2-1, against Graham Potter’s ten men.
Nuno told his pre-match press conference that display showed how Traore is changing his game up now.
“What we saw, honestly, against Brighton was the improvement of Adama,” said Nuno.
“The ability to play in different spaces and do different things that he wasn’t doing before. We’re used to seeing Adama wide, one versus ones, but he was inside of the box.
“He made a fantastic combination and one touch finish, like a striker. This is what we want, trying to take Adama to different places in the pitch, to try to reproduce different actions, because his impact can be fantastic.
“He’s unique. What I saw there was a clear improvement in ability of Adama to play in different circumstances, and that’s a big step.”
We all know there’s more to come from Traore, more levels for him to go to.
Nuno clearly has an idea in his head of what he wants the wideman to do, and was pleased with what he saw last weekend.
The consistency is key. If Nuno starts Traore at Spurs, he needs to reproduce that Brighton display.
It will be interesting to see Traore’s evolution continue, because he has the skill and pace to trouble any team, it’s just getting him in the right place to cause as much damage as possible.
