Adama Traore dislocated his shoulder in the first half during Man Utd vs Wolves

Manchester United v Wolverhampton Wanderers - Premier League

Wolves stayed within touching distance of a Champions League qualification spot after a respectable 0-0 draw away to Manchester United.

It leaves Nuno Espirito Santo’s side level on points with United and six behind Chelsea in fourth.

Having started Europa League qualification in August, it’s already been a long season for Wolves. And yet they’re still in contention for European places having lost just six times this season - only Manchester City and Liverpool have lost fewer.

A lot of their success has been down to the attacking duo of Raul Jimenez and Adama Traore.

While they didn’t have too many opportunities at Old Trafford, the pair looked dangerous on the break.

That’s despite Traore dislocating his shoulder in the first half. No, seriously.

Just before half-time, Harry Maguire tugged on Traore’s shoulder resulting in a dislocation.

But if you think that a dislocated shoulder would end the pacy winger’s game, think again.

He stayed on until the 76th-minute before he was replaced. The reason behind his substitution? Not a dislocated shoulder but an injured calf.

"I know he's in a lot of pain. He dislocated his shoulder and Matt (Perry), the doctor, managed to put it back again," said Espirito Santo.


"He had another kick in the end, so he's on ice now. But I think it's nothing serious."

But it’s not the first time this has happened to Traore. In fact, earlier this season he suffered a dislocated shoulder against Tottenham.

"It happened before, Tottenham. He's a strong boy. He'll be OK, hopefully,” Nuno confirmed.

He certainly is strong.

Some footballers are out for weeks after getting a little kick. Meanwhile, Traore dislocates his shoulder, pops it back in and plays on for another 30 minutes.

What a guy.
