Any full-back lined up against Adama Traore at Euro 2020 will know he’s ready for a game because he displays frenzied pace and frightening strength.
And if the Wolves star plays for Spain this summer, fans might just notice he’s a bit fatter than usual.
Over the past few seasons, Wolves medics have devised a scheme to protect the forward by smothering his arms in BABY OIL before games.
Backstage staff at the Premier League club have been seen plastering the 25-year-old’s muscular arms with oil and Spain will no doubt adopt the tactic as well.
It was used as a solution to prevent defeated defenders from shooting Traore’s arms after he passed them.
This slowing down tactic was causing more trouble for his already awkward shoulder – Traore dislocated him during a home game against Tottenham in December 2019.
His shoulder has come out four more times since.
So, in an attempt to protect the player, Wolves came up with this potentially awesome solution.
A Wolves insider confirmed to The Sun, “This is something we had to do to protect Adama.
“The defenders are so worried he pulls away from them with his pace that they reach out and pull his arm.
“It made the shoulder stick out during games.
“Lubricating his arms makes it harder for opponents to catch him and helps prevent further damage.”
Traore is part of Spain’s 23-man squad for Euro 2020 and will face Sweden in their Group E opener on Monday night.
