Wolves boss Bruno Lage wants more from Jimenez after Sunday strike

Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Bruno Lage wants more from striker Raul Jimenez following his goal on Sunday.

The Mexican striker netted a wonderful solo goal almost 10 months to the day since he fractured his skull to give Wolves a 1-0 win against Southampton on the south coast.

Lage now wants the striker to brush off his emotional winner at Southampton by adding more goals to his tally.

"Sometimes you need to understand the subject is important but you cannot give it too much importance. We’ve spent two or three days talking about why Raul takes his headband (off), so I say next time when he takes off his band we’ll call the Mexican police and the FBI!

“We cannot put too much pressure on the players, they need to come and enjoy the game. They already know they need to do things well, football is about that. We don’t need to be there like, ‘You need to score goals’ or ‘today you need to make good saves’.

“I am lucky with him because now he’s just scored and we will talk about it! For me, he’s scored and tomorrow is another day. He needs to work hard for us in the same way to score more goals," the coach said.
