Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Hugo Buneo has lavished praise on Adama Traore and Raul Jimenez.

The 18-year-old has sat down with the club’s official website to participate in the ongoing ‘One to Eleven’ series.

It is a chance for players to give some insight into their lives both on and off the pitch.

Spaniard Bueno, who has been at the club for two years, has spoken about things such as his early memories of football, and how it was when he first came to the Black Country.

Bueno was also asked for the player whose style he tries to emulate.

He responded: “Adama is a fantastic player and he always takes people on one-vs-one, puts in a lot of crosses and creates a lot of chances. I want to be like him.

“I would like to have a career like Adama’s.”

Traore is very much a one-of-a-kind player, and is arguably one of the world’s best for beating a man one-on-one. It is little wonder Bueno is impressed.


The full-back was then asked to give the name of a player he looks up to the most.

He replied: “Raul Jimenez is a fantastic player and a role model for me. Every time I see him and train with him, he’s just incredible.”

Bueno must study the duo closely

Hopefully Bueno is playing close attention to both Traore and Jimenez.

As a full-back, perhaps it’s Traore he needs to be watching more.

But the professionalism of Jimenez should definitely serve as an inspiration.

The 30-year-old is clearly a very popular figure at Molineux, with Austin Samuels, John Ruddy and Morgan Gibbs-White all praising him in the last week or so.
