Wolves winger Traore is world class and is worth £80m – Molineux legend speaks out

Adama Traore is a world class player for Wolves who is now worth up to £80m. That’s the view of Wolves legend Kenny Hibbitt, who is delighted to see the winger blossom towards his full potential this season. Traore has become a national talking point this week after terrorising Tottenham’s defence in Sunday’s 2-1 defeat. Senior Spurs players are even said to have approached manager Jose Mourinho asking them to sign the 23-year-old winger in January.  Three Spurs players were booked for fouls on Traore during the game to make it 24 yellow carded against him in 26 games this…

Harry Kane admits Wolves are now a rival for Tottenham

Harry Kane admits Wolves are now a rival for Tottenham in their quest to reach the Champions League. Kane was relieved as Spurs beat Wolves 2-1 to leapfrog Nuno Espirito Santo’s side and go fifth in the Premier League table. The Tottenham and England captain says they targeted the games against Wolves and Chelsea this Saturday to take maximum points to muscle their way towards the Champions League places before Christmas. “Absolutely. Even before Chelsea’s result on Saturday, we said it’s two important games,” said Kane. “Wolves were one point ahead of us. These two games were very important for…

Wolves’ long unbeaten run has given us confidence to build another – Jota

Diogo Jota insists the momentum from Wolves’ long unbeaten run has given the players the confidence to do it again. Tottenham ended Wolves’ 11-match league sequence without defeat in harsh circumstances on Sunday when Jan Vertonghen’s stoppage-time header gave the visitors a 2-1 win. But Wolves produced one of their best performances of the season and Jota reckons the players have the mentality and belief in each other to start another stretch without loss as they prepare to travel to Norwich on Saturday. “Being so long without losing gave us a lot of confidence,” said Jota. “We trust each other,…

Moutinho: Wolves are determined to better last season’s achievements

Joao Moutinho insists Wolves are determined to improve on last season to reward the club’s ‘amazing’ fans. The Molineux magician continues to leave supporters pinching themselves at the stunning levels of performance which made him many oberservers man of the match in Sunday’s harsh last-gasp 2-1 defeat to Tottenham. Wolves finished last season in seventh spot to qualify for the Europa League – their highest placing for 39 years – and reached the FA Cup semi-finals for the first time in 21 years. The weekend setback – their first in 12 league games after equalling their longest top flight unbeaten…

Traore’s Wolves transformation explained – by a former Aston Villa team-mate

Micah Richards believes Wolves winger Adama Traore’s transformation is down to having a manager who believes in him. Traore has been a revelation this season for Wolves, with his stunning strike in Sunday’s 2-1 defeat against Tottenham taking his tally to four goals and six assists in 26 games as opposed to one and three in 36 appearances in all competitions last term. That turnaround is down to countless hours of perseverance on the training ground from head coach Nuno Espirito Santo and his staff working with the 23-year-old winger. They have effectively slowed him down to become more effective,…

Adama Traore was Wolves’ nearly man according to ex-Tottenham man Jenas

Adama Traore was Wolves’ nearly man against Tottenham, according to former Spurs midfielder Jermaine Jenas. Traore caught the eye as he constantly attacked the Spurs defence and scored a cracking equaliser with a fierce shot from the edge of the box, while also attracting three bookings for Tottenham players. One report even claimed a senior Tottenham player went to manager Jose Mourinho after the game and called for him to sign Traore. But Jenas spotted a flaw in Traore’s make-up that he claimed cost Wolves the game as Jan Vertonghen headed a stoppage-time winner to seal an unlikely 2-1 victory.…

Everton U23s 3 Wolves U23s 2 A late own goal from Owen Otasowie sentenced Wolves Under-23s to a 3-2 defeat away to Everton at Southport’s Pure Stadium. Wolves early on through striker Benny Ashley-Seal, before a double from Everton striker Ellis Simms turned the game on its head.

Adama Traore’s targeting is ‘relentless’ and refs can’t stop it – Wolves skipper Coady

Adama Traore’s targeting by Premier League defenders is relentless according to Wolves captain Conor Coady – who claims referees can’t stop it. Three Tottenham players – Toby Alderweireld, Eric Dier and Harry Kane – were booked for fouling Traore in Sunday’s 2-1 defeat at Molineux, making it 24 players booked for fouls on him in 26 games this season. The statistics confirm the 23-year-old flier is being deliberately pinpointed by opposition players, but Cpady wants more protection for the speedy winger. “We were a bit gutted with the amount of fouls they put in on him,” said the skipper. “They’re…

Wolves ‘have the best crowd in the Premier League – Coady

Captain Conor Coady says Wolves have the best crowd in the Premier League. Supporters responded to a superb spectacle against Tottenham on Sunday by raising the roof at Molineux with their backing, despite the last-gasp 2-1 defeat. The attendance of 31,674 was a new record at the rebuilt stadium and the biggest at Molineux since March 10, 1981 when 40,524 packed into the ground to see the FA Cup quarter final win against Middlesbrough. The Spurs gate overtook the 31,642 for the visit of Sheffield United on December 1 and was the highest in the league at the ground since…
