Wolves ‘confident’ of Jimenez’s return before end of campaign


Mexican striker, Raul Jimenez is set to return for Wolves before the end of this campaign, coach Nuno Espirito Santo has confirmed.

A collision between Jimenes and Arsenal’s David Luis left him with a skull fracture which has kept him sidelined since the 2-1 win over the Gunners in November 2020 at the Emirates Stadium.

The 29-year-old received lengthy treatment on the pitch before being taken off on a stretcher and rushed to the hospital.

When asked if he would play again this season, Nuno replied: “Totally confident, totally confident.

“For sure, the speed is the speed we need to follow. We need to be aware of the circumstances. Avoid any kind of contact.
