Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has provided an update regarding the fitness of star man Raul Jimenez.
Nuno’s ‘amazing’ update
The 29-year-old has been sidelined since November after fracturing his skull after a nasty head clash with Arsenal defender David Luiz in a game that the Black Country club went on to win 2-1 at the Emirates.
Despite being sidelined for the past two months, Jimenez is still the club’s joint-highest goalscorer this season alongside Pedro Neto with four goals, which shows just how much they have missed the Mexican’s attacking prowess.
But Nuno provided some good news to reporters during his pre-match press conference (cited by Express & Star), as he said that he was delighted with the progress that Jimenez is making on his road to full recovery.
Nuno added that the results of his consultation were “amazing,” but that it was too early to predict when the centre-forward could return to action.
Transfer Tavern Verdict
Wolves could really do with Jimenez’s goals at this time. But we are sure the supporters will look at this with a glass half full approach.
There is no getting away from the fact that the Mexico international is arguably the club’s best player, and he was previously described as “phenomenal” by teammate Conor Coady.
That being said, Wolves will take every precaution with Jimenez, and rightly so, so it will be a case of ‘wait and see’ when it comes to any possible return date.
