Nuno on Raul Jimenez

Ahead of Thursday’s clash at Stamford Bridge, Nuno Santo has provided an update on Raul Jimenez.

The Mexican, unfortunately, suffered a serious injury back in November vs Arsenal, which saw him stretchered off following a clash of heads with David Luiz.

It was subsequently revealed that Jimenez had suffered a fractured skull, and he has not featured for Wolves since.

However, speaking pre-Chelsea, Nuno revealed his hope that the former Benfica man will play again this season:

“We are truly positive that this can happen. It’s very good news. It’s very good news the way he keeps improving day by day.”
