Wolves striker Raul Jimenez is out from hospital and is now resting at home with his family.

The Mexico international needed surgery after a clash of heads with David Luiz in last week’s 2-1 win at Arsenal, and remained in hospital until Tuesday was discharged with club doctor Matt Perry describing his initial progress as excellent.

Wolves head coach Nuno Espirito Santo said he was “afraid” for the mexican striker.

Nuno said: “It was very serious and everyone was afraid, everyone was worried. As the days go by and, knowing he is being taken good care of, we have been able to return to a normal situation.”

Following Jimenez and Luiz’s collision, a debate was opened and the support for the introduction of concussion substitutions increased. Ex-players, managers and coaches – including Nuno – also calling for a review on protocols.

Nuno added: “I think everybody involved in the game is supportive of the concussion substitution because it’s something serious.”
