Midlands journo makes big Raul Jimenez claim

journalist Luke Hatfield does not believe that striker Raul Jimenez has reached peak match as he continues his recovery from a serious head injury.

Following the defeat against Brentford at the weekend, Jimenez has made five starts, although he has not scored despite having some good chances in the opening weeks of the campaign.

Wolves struggled for goals in their first three games of the season, failing to score against City, Tottenham Hotspur, and Manchester United, drawing another blank against the Bees at Molineux.

Is Raul Jimenez one of Wolves' top five strikers of all-time?

Yes, he's a class player

No, he's not quite there

Wolves, of course, have signed another striker in order to ease the burden on Jimenez, with Hwang Hee-Chan lured from RB Leipzig.

And Hatfield has not been all that impressed by the performances of Jimenez throughout the start of the season.

The 30-year-old, of course, suffered a horrendous injury against Arsenal last season, fracturing his skull in a clash of heads with defender David Luiz.

Hatfield, as a result, understands exactly why Jimenez is somewhat struggling to get up to speed.

He said: “Jimenez hasn’t quite got up to speed yet. That’s completely understandable given the injury he’s had but he’s not looked quite there.”
