Wolverhampton Wanderers' winger Adama Traore has always backed himself against any full back thanks to his blistering pace and rock-solid build and the Premier League club have come up with a ploy to make it nearly impossible to catch him on the pitch.
In a bid to prevent defenders grabbing hold of Traore, Wolves' medical department has come up with the ingenious solution of lathering the Spaniard's muscled arms with baby oil before and during matches.
Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo said the trick has ensured they do not lose Traore to niggling injuries.
Nuno revealed this during a news conference ahead of Tuesday's trip to runaway league leaders Manchester City.
Traore recorded four goals and nine assists in the league last season to help Wolves secure a seventh-place finish for a second consecutive season, although they are currently 12th.
The 25-year old has yet to make a goalscoring contribution in the competition this term, but remains a constant attacking threat with his passing and dribbling skills.
