Adama Traore has heaped praise on Wolverhampton Wanderers coach Nuno Espirito Santo, saying the Spaniard has been a 'massive figure' for him.

The Wolves boss has unlocked Traore's potential, making the forward one of the most sought after players in Europe.

Traore, a product of Barcelona’s La Masia academy, joined the West Midlands club back in 2018 from Middlesbrough for a reported fee of £18m, and he has become one of the most feared forwards in the Premier League today.

Arsenal star will be facing a spell on the sidelines.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with the Mirror, Traore said: “Nuno has been a massive figure for me. It’s the confidence he gives me.

“From the first day I came to wolves he just made me feel that he believes I can take on any player and make them struggle.

“That is massive for a player and maybe you think it’s just me but if you ask any of guys they will tell you that the confidence of the manager is as important as the training you go to on a daily basis.

“A lot has changed for me but the football ability has always been there it’s just a little bit of adjusting. The coach, food, my teammates helping me out a lot and also just the attitude to keep working because when you continue working hard everything eventually falls into place.”
