Defender Jetro Willems has said that it is more difficult to stop Adama Traore than Cristiano Ronaldo.
Adama Traore, the Wolves winger and former Barcelona youth academy product is one of the fastest and strongest players to play against. There is little stopping him in a one v one situation. However, Williems has taken it a little too far and compared him to Cristiano Ronaldo, the generational phenomenon who has scored over 700 goals in his career.
“I have played against some very good players in my career, but no one quite as fast as Traore,” Willems told the Northern Echo.
“He is unbelievable. Not only is he incredibly fast, he is so, so strong as well.
“He’s known as the fastest man in football and now I know that is true. I like to think I am quite fast too – at least I did before playing against him! That was something else.
“I have played against Ronaldo, who is fast, but not that fast. Of course, he is so skilful but sometimes that is easier than being up against someone with such incredible pace.”
We do not know how happy Traore will be but we sure hope Willems does not have to face Ronaldo any time soon.
