'Unstoppable - Exclusive: Darren Bent in awe of Wolves 'juggernaut' who started v Villa
Darren Bent gushed about Wolves attacker Adama Traore and claimed the 23-year-old winger is unstoppable on his day.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the former Aston Villa and Sunderland striker claimed Traore was a juggernaut when at his best and implied that when on red-hot form he could guarantee a win.
Traore has played 20 times across all competitions this season, including starting against the Villans on Sunday, and has contributed five assists as well as two goals to the cause.
Bent implied that Traore may be a bit inconsistent as he did claim Wolves being guaranteed a win depends on what version of the attacker turns up for the game.
“It just depends what Traore turns up as with Adama if he turns and plays like we know he can do, he’s going to win,” Bent told Football Insider.
“Because he’s like the juggernaut, he’s unstoppable.”

The 23-year-old has been with Wolves since 2018 after joining from Middlesbrough, with Nuno Espirito Santo’s side paying £18million in order to activate his release clause to get him.
Traore is contracted to stay at the Molineux until 2023 and will be hoping to earn his first international cap through his performances for the club, with him yet to be capped at international level.
The Wolves attacker is currently at the centre of some confusion as he previously was wrongly thought to have declared his allegiances to Mali, but was then called up to Spain’s squad.
