Wolves winger Adama Traore: Leaving Barcelona not my decision - talk to them

Wolves winger Adama Traore says his departure from Barcelona wasn't smooth.

Adama is preparing to face Espanyol in the Europa League round of 32 tomorrow night.

He said, "I was there for ten years, I was young. I even had my chance in the first team. But that was not my decision, you should talk to them...

"There were situations in Barcelona that I did not like, problems with those responsible at the time, and I made the decision to leave. These are things that happened, which I will tell in due course, but for now I prefer to keep for myself.

"What happened, happened. They made their decisions and I left. Then my stages with Aston Villa and Middlesbrough were tough, which made me grow as a person and player."

Adama was also asked about Real Madrid transfer rumours and he added: "It wouldn't be a problem for me. I don't close any door, that's the reality. Now I'm happy here, I think we have a great team of people."
