Barcelona signed Adama Traore on loan from Wolves in January and the winger is flourishing under the guidance of Xavi Hernandez, but the same cannot be said about Francisco Trincao who made a switch in the opposite direction last summer on a season-long loan.
The Portuguese winger joined Wolves on loan from Barcelona but has stated his discontent with his lack of playing time, having been on the bench for four out of the last five Premier League matches.
“I’m doing my best for the coach [Bruno Lage] to think that [I should play more],” he told SkySports.
“It’s his decision, I have to respect it. Of course, I think I deserve more and I’m trying to do that and show that every day.”
Trincao also mentioned that, despite having not scored in his 20 appearances for Wolves, he is still contributing to the team with his all-round play.
“If you just look for the end product, maybe you can say that [we haven’t seen the best of me]. But if you look at football in terms of the whole game, you can say I’m doing great things.
“But normally people look for just the end product. But I’m trying to improve on that because I know it will give me the tools to be better and make people look at me differently.”
Wolves have a 30 million euro purchase option in the summer, but Trincao was coy over whether a permanent switch was likely.
“I’m just focusing on the things I can control which is the present and I’m trying hard to give my best and that’s all I’m thinking right now,” he said.
