Adama Traore has reasoned his departure from Barcelona saying he wanted to develop as a player.

Wolves winger Adama Traore has become one of the breakthrough players in the Premier League after playing an integral part for his team this season.

Adama Traore was a product of the Barcelona academy joining the youth setup when he was just eight years old. The 23-year old rose through the ranks and eventually made his La Liga debut in 2013, coming on for Neymar.

But, due to unnamed reasons, Traore couldn’t establish himself in the Barcelona team and, after surfing through a couple of Premier League clubs, he joined Wolves in 2018 where his career finally took off.

Speaking in an interview with Cadena, the Spaniard says he does not mourn over his decision to leave the Camp Nou and that it was an important step for his career.

“I spent 10 years there and I have lots of good memories. I came on for Neymar” Traore said as per AS.

“There were a few problems with the club, some misunderstandings. And so I decided to leave because I wanted to develop as a player. I’d rather not go into what happened with me and the club.

“I didn’t leave in the best way but I took the decision to leave and I don’t regret it”.
