Wolves striker Raul Jimenez has vowed to “return soon” after undergoing surgery for a fractured skull. Jimenez was reported to be “comfortable” on Monday after undergoing an operation on the injury, which was sustained in his side’s 2-1 win over Arsenal on Sunday.
The Mexican striker wrote on Twitter: “Thanks for your support messages. I will be under observation and I hope to return to the pitch soon.”
Jimenez was stretchered off following a clash of heads with Arsenal defender David Luiz and was given oxygen after the accidental coming together. The clash of heads occurred early in the match and resulted in a lengthy delay of around 10 minutes as paramedics and medical staff saw to both players.
Jimenez was treated at a London hospital and in a statement on Monday, Wolves said: “Raul is comfortable following an operation last night. He has since seen his partner Daniela and is now resting. He will remain under observation for a few days while he begins his recovery.
“The club would like to thank the medical staff at Arsenal, the NHS paramedics, hospital staff and surgeons who, through their skill and early response, were of such help.
“The club ask that Raul and his family are now afforded a period of space and privacy, before any further updates are provided in due course.”— Skysports.com
