Wolves' Adama Traore showed incredible strength and speed with run vs Bournemouth

  • Kobe Tong

Adama Traore has been one of the Premier League’s best players this season. There’s no two ways about it.

Football fans have always known of his potential and talent – he wouldn’t have played for Barcelona if that wasn’t the case – but it feel as though 2019/20 has been a watershed moment for the winger.

The Wolverhampton Wanderers star has caused havoc with four goals and eights assist in the league as well as proving a thorn in Manchester City’s side with masterclasses against them home and away.

And one of the key factors behind Traore’s progression this season has been a focus on the physical side of his game.

FIFA 20 will corroborate the fact that Traore is one of the fastest players in all of professional footballer and extra time in the gym has made him just as strong as he is rapid.

Wolves vs Bournemouth

Combine those two factors with a stunning level of ability and skill for one of the Premier League’s ultimate footballing machines and boy did Bournemouth find out about it this week.

The early action in England’s top division on Wednesday night was, ermm, quiet to say the very least and Traore quickly became the highlight from Wolves’ clash with the Cherries.

And with the scores goalless after 30 minutes, Traore thought he’d take on the entire Bournemouth team to try and carve out an opening goal for the hosts.


Traore turns on the style

What ensured was Traore running from 30 yards out from his goal to within 30 yards of the other with a mazy run that included some remarkable strength and speed.

Bournemouth tried to muscle him off the ball and failed. Bournemouth tried to catch up with him on the ball and failed. It really did look like men against boys and the footage proves it.

Check out Traore’s moment of pure badassery down below:

Just imagine if that led to a goal.

Wolves have since taken the lead through Raul Jimenez at the time of writing as the Black Country-based side look to make an unlikely beeline for Champions League qualification.

Who provided the assist? Traore, of course.
