Exclusive: Robinson in awe of 'Improved' Wolves ace who is playing 'best football of his career'

Paul Robinson heaped praise on Wolves attacker Adama Traore following his performance in the 2-1 victory over Aston Villa on Sunday.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the former Tottenham and England No.1 keeper shared that he thought Traore was too much of a handful for Villans defender Matt Targett to deal with at the weekend.

The 23-year-old winger has racked up five assists and scored two goals across the 20 appearances he has made across all competitions for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

Robinson revealed that he thought Traore was playing the best football of his career currently and pointed out that he thought the winger had improved on his dribbling skills and was utilising his pace better.

When asked about Traore giving Aston Villa’s Matt Targett the runaround, Robinson told Football Insider: “I think he is a handful for anyone at the moment.

“I think he is playing the best football of his career at the minute, he has been criticised for a lack of end product and a lack of goals, he was wasteful at times at the weekend but his pace and dribbling ability is very much improved.

“He’s just difficult to mark as a full-back as you never know whether to go tight to him or leave him in space.” 

Traore has been at Wolves since 2018 after joining from Championship side Middlesbrough in 2018, with the Premier League paying £18million to activate release clause.

The 23-year-old is contracted to stay put at Molineux until 2023 as he signed a five-year deal upon joining the club.
