Wolves’ striker Jimenez back in training after Skull fracture


Wolves head coach Nuno Espirito Santo says striker Raul Jimenez is now back in training as he continues his recovery from a fractured skull in November

The Mexico international striker required surgery following a clash of heads with David Luiz during the win at Arsenal on November 29.

Since then, Wolves have taken just 13 points from a possible 42 in the Premier League.

“He (Jimenez) is training, he has been able to integrate into some of the training sessions and he is improving and doing well,” Nuno said.

“We have to be very careful and follow the protocols but keep positive because he is doing well.

“We are delighted, but know it’ll take time. He is going in the right direction.

“He will keep improving his fitness, follow the protocols and do consultations with the neurosurgeon. It requires patience but it’s moving in the right direction.”

Wolves have not won back to back games in the Premier League since beating Fulham and then Leeds at Elland Road in October and Nuno has revealed his concern over their lack of consistency.

Wolves host Leeds at Molineux on Friday after Sunday’s 2-1 win at Southampton moved them to 12th in the top flight.

“Leeds are a very good team, very special and unique in the way they approach the games. They have a fantastic squad, a very good manager (Marcelo Bielsa) and we realise they are very competitive. It will require the best of us” Nuno added
