Wolves star Adama Traore pictured getting massive arms covered in oil to be slippery so defenders can't grab him
WOLVES star Adama Traore had layers of BABY OIL rubbed all over his arms before the Europa League win against Olympiakos.
It is the novel way club staff are helping protect the lightning quick winger from being tugged back by opponents.
Traore has enjoyed a stellar season that has attracted reported transfer interest from Manchester United and Juventus.
One way opponents have tried to halt his foraging runs is to tug back the 24-year-old former Barcelona youth player.
So as SunSport exclusively revealed, before games the physio team rub oil over his limbs to make him slippery enough to escape.
It’s their smart solution to prevent beaten defenders tugging at Traore’s arms when he goes past him to try and slow him down.
It’s something we’ve had to do to protect Adama
The underhand tactic was playing havoc with the winger’s troublesome shoulder which he dislocated at home to Spurs in December.
Since then it’s popped out a further four times, most recently against Sheffield United earlier this month.
Traore has been bravely soldiering on with the help of a bespoke brace which Wolves had specially made to help protect their burly forward – now they have come up with their oily solution.
“It’s something we’ve had to do to protect Adama,” a Wolves insider confirmed.
“Defenders are so worried about him getting away from them with his pace they were reaching out and tugging at his arm.
“That was causing the shoulder to pop out during games.
"Lubricating his arms makes it harder for opponents to grab him and helps prevent further damage.”
