Wolves striker Raul Jimenez: Southampton fight-back proves our spirit

Wolves striker Raul Jimenez says victory over Southampton was proof of the spirit within the squad.

Wolves came from 2-0 down to win 3-2 on Saturday.

Raul said, “Most of the time this season we were down in the score and came back in the second-half, even sometimes in the first-half to draw the match. We work hard, never give up on a lost ball, which I think makes us Wolves, going to the same place, everyone fighting for each other.

“We know that until the end it's dependent on us, what we want to do, what we want to achieve. So, we need to keep going until the last minute and keep trying to score, keep making our football, that's what makes us Wolves.

“We have to be patient, to go on pressing, knowing a goal against is going to be difficult. The opportunities will come and at the end of the match we have a win we deserve."

His brace made the Mexican the club's all-time leading Premier League scorer.

He added: “It's very special. It's an amazing feeling, I want to say thank you to all my teammates, to the staff, to the coach, the people, because without all of them, I can't achieve this goal. So, I'm very happy for this and I want to keep scoring."
