Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo believes Raul Jimenez will play again this season

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo says he is “totally confident” that Raul Jimenez will be able to play again this season after fracturing his skull in November reports Sky Sports.

When asked about Jimenez’s chances of playing this season during his press conference ahead of Wolves game with Newcastle Nuno said: “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.

He has been able to participate in the initial part of the training sessions. Just being with his team-mates is a big help for him and for us.

“We are following the right protocols with no rush. Delighted he is getting better and better day by day. So it is fantastic for us.”

Images of the striker were published on the official Wolves Twitter account this week as the 29-year-old makes his way back into full-time training following his skull fracture.

The Mexico international needed surgery following a heavy clash of heads with Arsenal defender David Luiz on November 29th 2020.

Jimenez has been in recovery ever since and has made tremendous progress, so much so he was pictured back in training with a ball at his feet.
