The young winger also says the glory of the team is more important than individual praise.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Aston Villa’s latest signing Adama Traore says he is determined to excite the fans after his move from Barcelona.

The highly rated youngster completed his move from the Nou Camp last week, with manager Luis Enrique making it clear that he was not in his first team plans for the future.

Traore’s capture has been met with positive response from the Villa faithful, with him likely to be a star player should he develop properly in the Premier League, and he says he is looking to excite the fans, highlighting just what he brings to the table.

“I think people would say I am explosive and I am fast,” he told

“I want to excite the fans. I want to get them out of their seats and enjoy match days watching this team. I want to see the fans cheering and screaming - but not just for me, for all the players!”

Team more important than me

Having been at the Nou Camp for some time now, the youngster has witnessed first hand how the likes of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez have taken the plaudits for their displays.

It is evident that Traore is looking to become a key player in Tim Sherwood’s side, with him unlikely to face stern competition given the lack of numbers in the position in the Villa squad.

He though, insists that the glory of the team is all he cares about, as the work of everybody in the team is vital.

“The glory of the team is what I care about!” he added.

“Sometimes the forwards get the merit from the fans but the work of everybody is vital - every single member of our team. We win together. We lose together. Being a team is far more important than any individual glory.”
