Wolves provide update on Raul Jimenez following head injury

He suffered a fractured skull

Wolves have provided an update on the condition of star striker Raul Jimenez after he was taken to hospital to treat a head injury sustained during their win over Arsenal.


The club confirmed Jimenez fractured his skull in the clash of heads.

“Raul is comfortable following an operation last night, which he underwent in a London hospital," Wolves said in a statement.

“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.”


The incident occurred during the first half of the game at the Emirates, when Jimenez and David Luiz clashed heads while competing for an aerial ball.

Upon falling to the ground, Jimenez was out cold while Luiz escaped with less serious damage. The Arsenal defender's head was bandaged up and he was controversially allowed to play on, before being replaced at half time by Rob Holding.
