Wolves boss Nuno confirms headgear plan for Raul Jimenez

Wolves boss Nuno retains confidence of Raul Jimenez playing again this season.

The forward, who suffered a fractured skull in the match at Arsenal last November, was pictured wearing the headband – which is reinforced around the area Jimenez sustained the injury – as he continued his recovery this week.

Asked if Jimenez could wear the headgear in a match, Nuno said: "Yes, that's the idea. It's different to what was used in the past, more advanced. He feels comfortable in it, he is able to do almost every action.

"When we have clearance and everything is OK, let's see if it is able to be applied in competition. But with Raul there are still a lot of question marks, a lot of boxes that we have to tick. We still have to avoid heading the ball.

"It would be good for him to join Mexico squad to see his friends because it's a big part of his life. Many friends he has are there so it would be good for him.

"He will be with Mexico in Wales and then he will return to Wolves. We are taking these steps very carefully to bring him back in the best way possible."
