Wolves: Old Gold hope to have Raul Jimenez back before the World Cup

Wolves: Old Gold hope to have Raul Jimenez back before the World Cup -Premier League News

Wolverhampton Wanderers hope to have striker Raul Jimenez back to full fitness and available for selection before the World Cup begins, according to journalist Liam Keen.

The Lowdown: Jimenez’s injury

After missing the first two games of the 2022/23 Premier League season with a knee injury, the Mexico international returned as a substitute against Tottenham, before leading the line for the Old Gold in their subsequent matches against Newcastle and Bournemouth.

However, the 31-year-old hasn’t played a minute of football since, with an ongoing groin injury cited as the reason for his absence.

As a result, the Wanderers have been without their top scorer from last season, who has netted 55 goals in 150 appearances in a Wolves shirt.

The Latest: Keen’s news

Keen has shared an update on Jimenez’s road to recovery, relaying comments from interim boss Steve Davis:

“Wolves hope to have Raul Jimenez back before the World Cup break but are still unable to put a timeline on it, according to Steve Davis.”

The Verdict: Great news

With the Midlands outfit struggling to find the back of the net this season having only amassed four goals in the league thus far, Wolves brought Sasa Kalajdzic in to fix the issue.

However, after a couple of weeks with the club, the Austria international suffered a devastating knee injury, sidelining him for a minimum of six months.

As a result, in a desperate, last-chance move, the Wanderers welcomed Diego Costa to the Molineux on a year-long contract.

However, having failed to find the back of the next in an Old Gold shirt as of yet, fans will be rearing to see Jimenez, hailed as a ‘special’ player by former boss Nuno Espirito Santo, back fit and firing upon his return at the Molineux.
