Wolves striker Raul Jimenez should be able to leave the hospital “by early next week” after sustaining a fractured skull against Arsenal on Sunday, his club has reported.
Since undergoing surgery on his broken skull, Raul Jimenez is supposed to be out of the hospital by next week at the latest.
Wolves may not, at least not officially, set a timeline for his rehabilitation, but they reported on Thursday that the Mexican could be home no later than early next week.
A statement attributed to Wolves doctor Matt Perry on the club’s website read: “Following Raul’s injury on Sunday, and the subsequent surgery, he has been recovering well in hospital.”
“We are delighted with the reports from his specialist; he has made excellent progress. He should be ready to leave the hospital by early next week.”
“Once home, he will be reunited with his partner and young daughter who, because of COVID restrictions, he hasn’t seen since Sunday night.”
“As his doctor, I am not going to disclose any more details of his injury, his surgery or provide daily accounts of his recovery.”
“Any injury of this nature is complex and timescales are uncertain but it’s safe to say that Raul’s most immediate needs are simple: space, rest, and peace.”
“Raul and his family are very thankful for the privacy they have been given, and for the overwhelming support, they have felt from the football family and beyond.”
“Raul is extremely grateful for all the messages of goodwill he continues to receive, which will certainly help him during his recovery.”
