Image for Wolves: Fans react to Joe Edwards’ tweet on Raul Jimenez

Fans of Wolverhampton Wanderers have been responding to a tweet from the Express and Star journalist Joe Edwards which mentioned Raul Jimenez.

According to Edwards, the Mexican forward is training as normal and missed one session last week due to pictures of a baby scan being taken (per Joe Edwards).

The Express and Star reporter went on to explain that there is ‘no need to panic’ for Wolves supporters.

Jimenez and his partner Daniela Basso are currently expecting the couple’s first child together (per Express and Star).

Basso and Jimenez even revealed the sex of their unborn baby at Molineux, with the striker hitting a target in a goal with a football which set off blue smoke to reveal that the baby is a boy (per BBC).

Panic may have arisen amongst Wolves supporters following Jimenez’s absence from training as Tuttosport has recently suggested that Juventus are interested in signing the Mexican.

Manchester United, too, reportedly have an interest in signing the 29-year-old striker from Wolves (per The Times).

However, after the journalist relayed the news about the striker’s whereabouts to Wolves fans, supporters aired their calm over the matter.

Not only has Jimenez been Wolves’ top scorer this season, but he has also netted an impressive six assists over 29 league outings this term.

As can be seen in these responses from Wolves fans, most were relieved to hear the explanation on Jimenez’s whereabouts, while others played it cool over any concerns.
