Wolverhampton head manager Nuno Espirito Santo trusts Raul Jimenez is as of now contemplating his return

The 29-year-old visited the club's training ground this week after he got released from the clinic following a medical procedure on a cracked skull. 


is recuperating having endured a genuine injury in a bang of heads with

David Luiz



a month ago. 

No time period has been set on his full recovery yet Nuno feels Jimenez has the will to make an effective rebound. 

He said:

“I don’t think he’s talking (about it) but I’m sure he is feeling. He has this desire inside him that he wants to return and this is the most important step that he has already made.

“We will give him time but he wants to return. Raul is a player who must be on the pitch, so talented, so good and very important for us. I know that in his mind is this will to return.

“He has to give his body time but the most important thing is his desire to return.”

Jimenez will watch his team welcoming Aston Villa on Saturday's

Premier League

fixture at home while a banner from crowdfunded fans will cover three squares of the Steve Bull Upper Stand as a morale-boosting gesture.

Nuno, however, is confident the Mexico international will have the option to re-visit Molineux stadium and watch a game soon.

“I think so. He had breakfast with us today (Friday) and can easily go to the match,” he said.

“It is about the decisions of the doctors that are with him to see if it’s the right moment to do it because, when you attend a match, the emotions are there so it’s about that. He saw training so he could easily go to Molineux.

“Maybe next time I’ll put him on the squad list, this way I can make him go.”
