Wolves striker Jimenez won't play before World Cup


Wolves striker Raul Jimenez won't play again before the World Cup.

The Express & Star says Jimenez has joined up with Mexico national team staff in Spain this week to continue his rehabilitation from a chronic groin injury that has kept him out of action since August 31.

Jimenez will then return to England this weekend to continue his recovery, which is understood to be progressing well.

However, the 31-year-old will not fit to play any part in Wolves' Carabao Cup tie with Leeds on Wednesday or the Premier League clash with Arsenal on Saturday.

Jimenez had previously spent three weeks in Mexico undergoing rehabilitation for his injury, in a setting that Wolves believed would help with his recovery as he was close to family. During that time, members of Wolves' medical team spent time in Mexico with Jimenez, as he was undergoing their treatment plan.
