Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo reminded there are still “a lot of boxes to tick” before Raul Jimenez can back to the pitch.

Jimenez has been out of action since breaking his skull against Arsenal in late November, and Nuno believes that even if the Mexican striker is given clearance, it will still take a long time for him to be fully fit.

As we speak he’s in a meeting with the specialist and our doctor,

” Nuno said at press conference ahead of Wednesday’s match against Everton . “

Hopefully we’ll have positive news and from there we’ll decide and see what is the best decision to make and how he is going to be involved


“We have a lot of boxes to tick. There’s a lot of things that after today we have to look and decide. He has to do an MRI, a scan, psychological tests, he has to first start impacting the ball with the head after all these things.

“There’s still a lot of things we must consider before we decide on Raul. The meeting is now, when we have all the information, we will sit down and carefully look at what to do and how to do it.”
