Adama Traore has praised Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo for helping him develop at the club.
The record-signing is yet to make his first start for the side since his switch from Middlesbrough in the summer but has been impressive in his seven substitute appearances this season, scoring once.
Agreed that he needs to improve on some areas in his game, the former Aston Villa player is happy that his gaffer is helping him grow as a better player.
“I think he is a fantastic manager. He speaks with me a lot, I speak with him, one-to-one, about tactics, what I need to improve on and work on,” Traore told Shropshire Star.
“We speak about my good things and how I can explode to produce my maximum I can give on the pitch. We have spoken about my tactics, my quality, about everything in my game.
“He doesn’t just do this with me, but with everyone, every single player, to get the best out of the team. I think that’s very good. I am happy to be here and I will work 100 per cent to get the best out of myself.
“I think I need to work on the defensive side of my game, on the tactical side.
“It’s different tactics to where I came from, Middlesbrough, so I need to keep working on that.
“I also need to work on my finishing and on my ‘last metres’ in front of the goal, so I need to work on a lot of things.
“I need to speak with the manager and the coaches and they say ‘yes’, but they tell me there are a lot of good things that I’m doing as well.
“I’m only focusing on being better every day and these things are in my mind.”
