Middlesbrough’s Adama Traore is determined to succeed and work hard to make the most of his natural abilities, and an article in Thursday’s Mundo Deportivo illustrates just how much.

Highly rated at Barcelona and put on the road to greatness, Adama learned at Aston Villa that things can go wrong very quickly and change the path of a career.

Not only was Adama at Aston Villa during a disastrous relegation season, but he also suffered injury issues over his debut campaign in England.

Already the quickest player at the club, and proving that in games this season, Mundo Deportivo say Adama has recreated a gym at home to match what he used to have at Barcelona.

Through a former La Masia teammate, Adama was put in contact with Oscar Martinez of Barcelona fitness group Global Performance.

Martinez now spends his weekdays in England, working with Adama in the afternoon to improve performance, and making sure that doesn’t come at the expense of injury.
