Wolves boss Nuno hails matchwinner Adama: Special goal from special player

Wolves boss Nuno praised matchwinner Adama Traore after their FA Cup victory over Crystal Palace.

Traore's thunderbolt effort made all the difference, and the head coach expressed his delight in a 'special goal from a special player'.

Nuno said, “A special goal from a special player. I'm very happy for him because I think this goal will boost his confidence.

“It was a cramp, but he's a very special player, who is explosive with his actions. He's very difficult and we just didn't want to push him anymore because we have a very tight schedule in front of us with some very tough games. Let's see how he is now, let's assess him, but besides the goal, he worked very well for the team, and this is what pleases me the most.

“He's been trying [to shoot with his left foot] and he's really trying harder in training sessions and that's why I'm so happy because he's got a will to improve, which is amazing.

“Adama is a versatile player and he can play in a couple of positions in the pitch, and one thing he shows every time he's on the pitch is that he causes a tremendous impact on our opponent."
