Tim Spiers has been speaking on the latest edition of The Athletic’s The Molineux View podcast about all things relating to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
One of the topics that The Athletic reporter spent a bit of time on was Raul Jimenez’s situation.
The Mexican has been out since he fractured his skull in a sickening clash with David Luiz during Wolves’ 2-1 win over Arsenal at the Emirates in November.
However, it appears as if the Old Gold are not ruling out Jimenez making a return for Wolves before the end of the season.
He said: (5:40) “If Jonny can get back to full match sharpness, if Willian Jose can start chipping in with a few goals and then we’re starting to look towards Jimenez’s return, I would expect.
“From everything we hear from the club, they’re not downplaying the fact he might be back this season, and they’re not downplaying the fact he’s enjoyed a very good recovery.”
Would you like to see Jimenez before the end of the season?
Yes, that would be a huge boost
No, let him rest for the whole season
TIF Thoughts on Jimenez’s situation…
Jimenez’s injury was brutal, but it sounds as if the club think he will be back playing for them before the end of the season.
This could be great news for Wolves as before his injury, the Mexican scored three goals and helped the Old Gold win four games in the league, and without him in their side, the Old Gold have won just four league games out of 15.
However, they have picked up form in recent weeks, and with the potential return of Jimenez, things are starting to look much better for Wolves, and we hope to see the 29-year-old back on the pitch soon.
