Raúl Jiménez joins Wolves for pre-season

Raúl Jiménez's road to recovery has been long, but very positive. The Mexican international fractured his skull back in November 2020 and he missed the remainder of the season with Wolves and the Gold Cup tournament with the Mexican national team.

Back in May, Jiménez was given the green light to return to full-contact practice and he will have to wear a headguard for the rest of his playing career. The 29-year-old striker had to pass an MRI scan and a physiological test in order to join the pre-season ahead of the 2021/22 Premier League campaign.

Bruno Large was appointed as the new manager for the upcoming season after the club parted ways with Nuno Espírito Santo. The new boss held the first pre-season practice on Monday and Raúl Jiménez participated with the rest of his teammates.
