Sherwood: Traore is not Aston Villa´s saviour

Tim Sherwood has warned Aston Villa fans not to expect too much too soon from Adama Traore, saying he will not be the club’s “saviour”.

Traore signed a five-year contract at Villa Park on August 14 after the Premier League outfit agreed a €10million fee, which could rise by a further €2m, with Barcelona.

During his time at Camp Nou Traore made only four first-team appearances, but his arrival was welcomed by the Villa supporters excited at seeing the 19-year-old in action.

However, Sherwood has looked to dampen those expectations by labelling Traore as a “development project” and suggesting he may not feature much in 2015-16.

“Traore is fit,” said the Villa boss. “He hadn’t trained for a week during negotiations. 

“The Premier League is a tough league. Hopefully we’ll see him at some stage this season. 

“He’s definitely one for the future.

“[But] I don’t want people to think he’s the saviour of Aston Villa.”

Sherwood’s side kicked off the season with a 1-0 win at newly promoted Bournemouth, but lost 1-0 at home to Manchester United last Friday.
