Wolves winger Adama: I'm not like Zaha, Sterling - they're like me

Wolves winger Adama Traore says Manchester City star Raheem Sterling "plays like me".

The Spaniard scored both goals on the counter-attack to deal the Blues a shock 2-0 defeat at the Etihad in October and then grabbed a goal and an assist in the reverse fixture over Christmas as Wolves won 3-2.

There aren't many players in the world, let alone the Premier League, who can keep up with Traore when he's going full tilt but he does admit that one City start comes close.

When asked by Wolves' official website if there were any players that are close to his playing style, Traore replied: “[Wilfried] Zaha and [Raheem] Sterling maybe, but I am not like them, more like they are like me."
