Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raul Jimenez has revealed his head injury is still not recovered, necessitating the need for the use of a headband.

Jimenez fractured his skull in a sickening clash Arsenal’s David Luiz in November 2020, with that left the Mexican striker unconscious on the pitch and needing immediate medical assistance.

It was later revealed he had fractured his skull in the collision, an injury that required extensive surgery and seemed likely to bring his playing career to a premature end.

He defied the odds, though, spending eight months battling back from the injury, despite not being able to train with his teammates for six months.

He now plays wearing a protective headband to prevent any further issues or a recurrence of the injury, although that has created new issues the Wolves striker is continuing to battle with.

If he had the choice, the Wolves star would play without it, but he’s revealed that is not an option as his skull injury isn’t completely healed.

“Now it’s a band, like a long headband, which covers that part more,” Marca report him saying.

“Because it’s where the skull is not completely welded and it’s for protection and there is no critical blow.

“I have a cracked skull and it is difficult for me to be hit again in that place, but it is the doctors’ recommendation.”
