Raul Jimenez: Wolves striker plays first game since fracturing skull

Raul Jimenez played his first game for Wolves since fracturing his skull in November last year. Jimenez started the game and was substituted after 34 minutes against Crewe Alexander in Mornflake Stadium. The Mexican superstar failed to get on the scoresheet but clipped the post off a freekick. This was his first piece of the action in over eight months on the sidelines.

New Wolves boss Bruno Lage handed a debut to Francisco Trincao after his move to Barcelona. He was wearing a protective head guard that is used for full contact training and matches. Jimenez was passed fit in may but was made to wait for a week before he could join the pre-season squad.

Jimenez was involved in a clash of heads with arsenal defender David Luiz during their match in the Premier League. He was treated on the pitch for 10 minutes before being stretchered off the pitch. The forward was given oxygen on the pitch before being taken to St Mary’s Hospital Paddington. He underwent surgery for traumatic brain injury (TBI) and a skull fracture.

Wolves signed Jimenez for £30m from Benfica in August 2019 after an initial season-long loan and he signed a new four-year deal last October. He has scored 48 goals in a total of 110 appearances for the club in all competitions, netting four times in nine Premier League appearances last season before his injury. Raul Jimenez will be looking to get back on track for Wolves in the 2021/22 season.
