Raúl Jiménez Back In Training But Return To The Pitch Won’t Be Rushed

Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raúl Jiménez has returned to training after his recovery from an operation on his fractured skull but his return to the team will not be rushed, manager Nuno Espírito Santo said on Thursday.

Life as a goalkeeper is difficult. A keeper can have fantastic game, but if one ball gets past them, they receive all of the blame.

Stats like goals against or save percentage have been used haphazardly to evaluate goalkeepers for years, but they fail to paint the whole picture.

For Arsenal, Red Is More Than Just A Jersey Color

There is nothing more frustrating in the sports world right now than being an Arsenal fan. Two more Arsenal red cards turned what looked like an impressive performance against Wolves into a 2-1 defeat on Tuesday.

Sin Raúl Jiménez, El Wolverhampton Es Miseria Tras Miseria

Una nube negra parece haberse posado sobre el Wolverhampton. Hoy, en su casa, el equipo desperdició una ventaja de 2-1 ante el West Bromwich, uno de los colistas de la Premier League, y terminó cayendo 2-3. La derrota, por cierto, no es un accidente y es parte de una mala racha que tiene un motivo más que claro: la pérdida de su talismán, el mexicano Raúl Jiménez.
