Raul Jimenez visits Wolves training as he recovers from fractured skull
RAUL JIMENEZ enjoyed a tender reunion with Wolves players as he visited training while recovering from a fractured skull.
Team-mates embraced the fans' favourite a day after his dad insisted the striker's horror injury "won’t have any consequences" on his playing career.
Jimenez chatted eagerly with Molineux stars before watching on with manager Nuno Espirito Santo, who put his arm around the 29-year-old's shoulder as they seemed to share a joke.
Mexico hero Jimenez is back home after several days in hospital, having needed emergency surgery following his collision with Arsenal defender David Luiz on November 29.
And his dad, who has the same first name, revealed doctors expect Jimenez Junior to return as fit and healthy as ever.
He told Mexican outlet Record: “We continue to be on the lookout because it’s something very difficult, but thanks to Raul’s strength, he’s coming forward.
“He’s somehow happy to know of the difficult situation that he’s leaving and that thanks to the good and timely intervention of the doctors in England.
"They did to him what could be done and he’s recovering in good spirits and highly motivated.
“What they told us it that he won’t have any consequences and that it’s all a matter of time before he starts with physical rehabilitation.”
Perhaps that verdict was another reason why Jimenez and fellow Wolves players wore huge grins on his return to the Sir Jack Hayward Training Ground, albeit on the sidelines.
Skipper Conor Coady, Portugal midfielder Joao Moutinho, Spain winger Adama Traore and Ivory Coast centre-back Willy Boly all wrapped their arms around Jimenez- showing their appreciation of his greatly-improved condition.
Now the next question, as yet unanswered, is when Jimenez himself can tuck back into active training.
