Wolves striker Raul Jimenez proud to beat Chicharito as Mexico's leading Prem goalscorer

Wolves striker Raul Jimenez is proud to be the Premier League's highest Mexican goalscorer.

Raul has beaten the mark set by former Manchester United and West Ham star Javier Hernandez.

He told Telemundo: "Before stopping all this, I did know that I had 13 goals, that I was tied with Chicharito and with myself, because last season I had 13, but all that was erased from me, but when I scored and I went back to the dressing room and started reading, I saw they said that I was the top scorer, that was when I realised.

"I am very proud of what that I am achieving, of what I have been able to do, and I hope to continue scoring to be able to increase that mark."
