Wolves: Steve Madeley unimpressed by Raul Jimenez’s World Cup involvement

Wolves: Steve Madeley unimpressed by Raul Jimenez’s World Cup involvement -Wolves News

The Athletic journalist Steve Madeley has reacted negatively to Wolves striker Raul Jimenez being involved at the World Cup, describing it as a ‘terrible’ situation.

The Lowdown: Jimenez named in Mexico squad

The 2022 World Cup gets underway in Qatar on Sunday as 32 countries vie to win the biggest football competition on the planet.

Wolves have a smattering of participation in the tournament, and one player who was perhaps surprisingly named in Mexico’s squad was 31-year-old striker Jimenez.

The Molineux hero has been limited to just two starts in the Premier League this season and hasn’t played for the club since August, so he may have been expected to miss out given his ongoing injury troubles.

The Latest: Madeley not impressed

Taking to Twitter, Madeley admitted that the situation regarding Jimenez leaves a bad taste at Wolves, with many supporters understandably frustrated as well.

Sharing a corresponding article for The Athletic after the striker played 45 minutes for his country against Sweden this week, the journalist tweeted:

“Raul Jimenez is back. But it’s for Mexico, not Wolves. Wolves fans are unimpressed, understandably. It’s a terrible look.”

The Verdict: Unfair on Wolves

This whole situation feels unfair on Wolves, who will now surely be concerned at the prospect of Jimenez not being fully fit at the World Cup and injuring himself further.

After the life-threatening head injury that the 31-year-old suffered two years ago, he should be treated with care at every opportunity, so this feels fairly negligent from Mexico.

If Jimenez returns from Qatar injured, having picked up a fresh problem and aggravated his current issues, Wolves would have every right to air their grievances.
