Wolves confirm Raul Jimenez has had surgery after suffering a fractured skull


Wolves forward Raul Jiménez suffered a fractured skull during their Premier League game against Arsenal and has now undergone surgery.

The Mexican star was stretchered from the pitch after a sickening clash of heads with Arsenal defender David Luiz shortly after the start of the clash.

“You start hearing ‘code red’,” Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo said. “It was a bad moment. What was the reaction? Panic, panic panic. You could see the faces on the team-mates. It was a serious situation. It’s awful and terrible.”

Jiménez was given oxygen and rushed straight to hospital after the incident. Wolves have now confirmed that the 29-year-old underwent an operation for a fracture to the skull and is now in a stable condition.

“Raul is comfortable following an operation last night, which he underwent in a London hospital,” read 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 ask that Raul and his family are now afforded a period of space and privacy, before any further updates are provided in due course.”

Jiménez scored a remarkable 17 goals for Wolves last campaign as Nuno Espírito Santo’s side finished seventh on the Premier League table.
