Raúl Jiménez goal drought extends to five games with Wolves

Wolverhampton lost to Brentford 2-0 on match week 5 of the 2021/22 Premier League season and they dropped to 16th place on the table with 3 points. The team now managed by Bruno Lage is having a rough start to the campaign with a record of 1W-0D-4L and only two goals scored in five games.

Bruno Lage praises Jiménez

Raúl Jiménez has gone the full 90 minutes in all five games of the season, but he has been unable to find the back of the net. The Mexican international has the full support of manager Bruno Lage and he believes that he will reach his full potential after recovering from the fractured skull injury suffered in November of last year.

"You see it the wrong way, I see it in a positive way. He [Jimenez] is a striker creating chances," Lage was quoted as saying by the Express & Star. "They [strikers] live for goals, but Raúl is an experienced guy. It's not a concern because of the way he works for the team."

Jiménez has been a key player on offense for Wolverhampton since arriving in 2018 and he has scored 48 goals and given 18 assists across all competitions in 115 appearances. It is expected that the Mexican international reaches his full-potential in the upcoming games.
