Abdoulrazak Traoré


Recommended Posts

From Wikipedia:

Abdoulrazak Traoré (born 28 December 1988) is a Cote d'Ivoire footballer who plays for Norwegian Premier League club Rosenborg B.K., where he plays as a midfielder.

At Rosenborg, he plays alongside his compatriot and Cote d'Ivoire international Didier Ya Konan, who joined the club in December 2006 from homeland club ASEC Abidjan.

Traore played on Raja Casablanca before he ended his contract and joined Rosenborg B.K. on a free transfer a few months later.

Traoré is known for his great technique and speed. He plays left forward in a 4-3-3 formation in Rosenborg due to the many midfielders in the club. His left foot is good for both shooting and crossing. He has also shown that he is an excellent dribbler and can also jump and head despite his height.

He is considered by many one of the greatest talents in Norwegian football, as he was chosen in front of both Per Ciljan Skjelbred, who declined a junior contract with Liverpool F.C., and Alexander Tettey, another young, talented Rosenborg player.


Traore played a total of 19 games, 3 as subs, scoring 4 goals, clocking 1313 mins on the pitch. Although most of his games were preseason games, he still made some league appearances and cup appearances for Rosenborg.

He kept out players such as Daniel Braaten (rat 86) and Didier Ya Konan (rat 80) for the first few games in the season. My Norwegian isn't that good, but Traore must be doing something right if he makes so many appearances for one of the best Norwegian clubs.

Rated only 77 and at age 18 valued 1.1m, he could develop into a good player in the near future if he gets more games at Rosenborg (which he should). He frequently plays at LM and LF, but is in SM as a CM.
