, he was taken to the hospital, and recently he had surgery on his fractured skull.

He tweeted on Monday:

“Thanks for your support messages. I will be under observation and I hope to return to the pitch soon.”

The seriousness of the injuries was clear from the reaction of both platers and Jimenez was also given oxygen.

Wolves also published a statement about his condition:

“Raul is comfortable following an operation last night, which he underwent in a London hospital.

“He has since seen his partner Daniela and is now resting. He will remain under observation for a few days while he begins his recovery.”

Arsenal allowed Luiz to play with a bandage on his head and the club faced criticism because of that. However, the club stated that they have followed the protocol.
