The Wolverhampton Wanderers ace, who joined Molineux from the Boro in 2018, impressed as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side beat the Premier League champions.
Wolverhampton Wanderers ace Adama Traore has taken to Twitter expressing his happiness at being named in the FUT Team of the Week following his two-goal display against Manchester City last weekend, and some Wolves and Middlesbrough fans alike responded to his message.
Prior to last Sunday, the 23-year-old continued to polarise opinion amongst the Molineux fanbase as his form was deemed by some as inconsistent but at the Etihad Stadium he showed what he was truly capable of as Nuno Espirito Santo’s charges ran out 2-0 winners over the reigning champions.
For the first 70 minutes, Traore kept Man City talisman Raheem Sterling quiet and, when he was shifted up top to partner Raul Jimenez in attack in the latter stages of the game, he went on to score two superb goals on the counter to make it three unbeaten in the Premier League.
As a result, the Wolves man made into the FUT Team of the Week and he took to social media to proclaim how proud and happy he was for the accolade – and some fans took the time to respond:

Traore was Wolves’ record signing for a period of time when they triggered the £18million release clause in his Middlesbrough contract in the summer of 2018, as reported by BBC Sport.
