Adama Traore congratulated Liverpool on their charge towards the Premier League title after Jurgen Klopp described the Wolves forward as ‘unplayable’.
Liverpool couldn’t handle Traore’s pace and power as he continually carved the Reds open in the second half of Thursday night’s clash at Molineux.
Wolves had looked to become only the second team this season to deny Klopp’s side a win in the league after Raul Jimenez had cancelld out Jordan Henderson’s opener.
But Liverpool showed the true grit of champions as Roberto Firmino struck six minutes from time to secure a 2-1 win and extend the Reds’ lead at the top to 16 points over second-placed Manchester City.
The Reds’ win dented Wolves’ hopes of gatecrashing the Champions League places, leaving them six points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
And Traore afterwards hailed them as “the best in Europe”.
“We don’t forget they are a great team, an amazing team and one of the best – or the best in Europe,” the Wolves forward told told BT Sport.
“Congratulations to them, how they are going in the league but we fight. We will fight to the end.”
Klopp returned the praise, describing Traore as “unbelievable”.
The Reds boss told BBC Sport: “He is unplayable in moments, it’s unbelievable.
“What a player – it’s not only him but he’s so good.”
Meanwhile, Traore said Wolves would not give up in their bid to break into the top four after missing the chance to go within three points of Chelsea.
The 23-year-old said: “The team did well today. We worked hard throughout the game.
“Sad we didn’t get the win or the draw but we have to keep pushing, working and taking the positive things, fight to the end.
“Disappointed not to take points but we take the experience.”
