Wolverhampton Wanderers fans were feeling elated after Raul Jimenez released a statement on his Facebook page over his future at the club.
In a video on the social media site, the Mexico international revealed that him remaining at the club isn’t dependent on Wolves being able to qualify for the Champions League. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are in contention to reach the lucrative competition as they sit just five points off fourth-placed Chelsea and are in the driving seat in their Europa League last-16 tie with Olympiacos.
One fan claimed he was ‘chuffed’.
Very true, I’m chuffed he’s happy. The whole squad is happy come to that.!!

Sounds like he’s discovered Alton Towers. Clincher.
