Wolvehampton Wanderers have announced that Raul Jimenez has sustained a serious injury but has begun his road to recovery.
As reported here on Futaa on Monday, Jimenez suffered a horrific head collision with David Luiz as Wolves beat Arsenal 2-1 on Sunday night.
While the club initially reported that the Portuguese striker was due to a scan, the latest update has since confirmed a completion of surgery for a cracked skull.
“Raul is comfortable following an operation last night, which he underwent in a London hospital," Wolves statement.
