Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has labelled Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Adama Traore “unplayable” after last night’s clash between the Reds and Wolves.

The Reds defeated Wolves 2-1 at the Molineux Stadium thanks to Jordan Henderson and Roberto Firmino, as they both scored goals.

The three points gives Liverpool a 16-point lead at the top of the Premier League table with a game in hand. However, it was far from a straightforward victory for the Reds.

Wolves really did give Liverpool something to think about, especially Traore, who was arguably the best player on the pitch for the home side. Klopp labelled him “unplayable” at times.

“We knew it would be a really tough game. Wolves are doing so unbelievably well and are so different from everything else you face during a year,” Klopp said, as quoted by Express & Star.

“How Nuno sets them up is really good. They now have (Romain) Saiss and (Leander) Dendoncker in there, where (Ryan) Bennett and (Willy) Boly played.

“And Traore is pretty much unplayable. I’ve said it a couple of times and it’s still true.

“He keeps the ball, holds the ball, and sets up goals obviously.”

The German manager is certainly not wrong. Traore is such a dangerous player to come up against.

His pace and strength make him a nightmare to deal with, and with that being the case, he will have plenty of sides looking to sign him come the summer. One would not be surprised if Klopp looked to sign Traore in the future.
