Gerardo Martino is determined to have Raúl Jiménez play the World Cup this winter. In order to accomplish this goal, the coaching team of El Tri will force him to complete four different work routines on a daily basis within the team’s bunker in Girona.

According to sources from El Tri in Girona, Martino has reportedly agreed with his coaching staff and the medical team over a strategy that will allow Jiménez to arrive to Qatar 2022 in the best possible physical and football shape.

What will Jiménez be doing?

As for the program, Jiménez’s daily schedule will include training with the ball. He actually started this Monday on the fields of La Vinya, which is the sports complex of Club Girona. In addition, to extensive physical routines, four times daily.

Moreover, throughout the critical phase, work will be done on the rehabilitation for his groin injury, using the most cutting-edge treatments possible, with the goal of reaching the limit of his physical acceptance, but without going beyond it, that is, without placing the player in danger.

The medical staff and the physical trainers believe that Jiménez will be able to get the all-clear on November 14 if he continues to follow this routine, which not only makes the player happy but also does not pose any danger to him. This will allow Jiménez to compete in the World Cup in Qatar.

For Martino to have Jiménez in his team is a must, and his staff will do everything they can to have the Wolves player in Qatar.

In this scenario, the Mexican national team will receive its full roster just a few hours before D-Day, on Monday, November 14, when Martino unveils the list of 26 players.
