Adam Traore Style of Play
Traoré’s manager at Villa, compared him to both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, saying he had “a bit” of both. Catherine Wilson of ESPN FC credited his “athleticism”, though also remarked that his “footballing brain and teamwork skills are definitely up for debate”.Remarking on his physique, the Belfast Telegraph stated “He’s built like an absolute tank. Size of the arms on that man. One drive and it would be lights out”.
In 2018, ESPN’s Matt Stanger acknowledged the player’s pace and strength, and added that he “is now showing the composure to find the killer pass”, while boasting “rapid acceleration” and “excellent close control to shield the ball from defenders”; Stanger also believed Traoré’s “defensive contribution” to be developed, pointing his key weaknesses as “moments of recklessness” and “decision-making” which “continues to frustrate his teammates”; he was also described by Teesside Gazette‘s Philip Tallentire as a ‘tallismanic playmaker’, after his form during the 2017–18 season.
While with Wolverhampton Wanderers, after his first three appearances as a substitute, Michael Butler of The Guardian reported: “Traoré has always been regarded as a rough diamond, lightning quick but perhaps lacking composure or an end product. […] Per 90 minutes, nobody in the Premier League has created more chances than the 22-year-old or completed even half the number of successful dribbles: Eden Hazard has 5.56 to Traoré’s 11.87. Nuno Espírito Santo has so far refrained from starting Traoré in the league, such is his ability off the bench to stretch the game and punish tired legs
