Raul Jimenez has scored on a consistent basis and been a key cog in the Wolves machine since his arrival in the summer of 2018.
The striker has more than 50 Wolves goals to his name, but it was his recovery from a sickening head injury which proved Jimenez’s greatest achievement in 2021, typifying the Wolves spirit.
The forward began his career for Club America, helping his boyhood side clinch two Liga MX titles, before securing a move to Europe, firstly at Atletico Madrid and then Benfica.
In 120 appearances in Portugal, he scored 31 goals and created 15, averaging a goal or assist every 75 minutes in their title winning campaign for 2018/19.
Jimenez also has 22 Champions League appearances to his name, as well as Portuguese Cup, Portuguese League Cup and Portuguese Super Cup winners’ medals.
A debut goal against Everton set Jimenez on his way for a thrilling time at Molineux, as his loan move was quickly made permanent, and he helped fire the club into the Europa League.
As many as 27 goals following during the 2019/20 campaign, including ten in Europe, however the sickening head injury he suffered at Arsenal in November 2020 shook the club.
Fortunately, thanks to incredible bravery and determination, the striker fought back to make a full recovery and his first goal after returning at Southampton in September 2021 provided one of standout moments of the 2021/22 campaign.
