Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Austin Samuels says Raul Jimenez is one of the best players he has ever seen in training.

The 20-year-old often works with the first-team, and has come to experience the Mexican star’s talents at Compton Park.

Jimenez is now back in full training following his awful head injury.

He is set to feature for the club against Crewe Alexandra on Saturday according to journalist Tim Spiers.

It will be his first game since his accident in November, and what a sight it will be to see him wearing the old gold shirt once again.

His absence for most of last season really stung Wolves, as he is such an influential player.

In the eyes of young striker Samuels, Jimenez is ‘unbelievable’.


He told the club’s official website: “He’s one of the best players I’ve ever seen in training. He makes everything look easy and sometimes he would do things that makes me think, ‘I have no idea how you just did that!’ Sometimes it doesn’t make sense to me how he does things, because he’s just that good. He’s unbelievable.”

Samuels also adds that he is trying to emulate £30m star’s (BBC Sport) play style. Specifically, how he links the play.

Jimenez the perfect role model

Hopefully Samuels continues to study Jimenez’s game carefully.

He is without doubt one of the best all-round centre-forwards in the Premier League, and hopefully he can have smooth transition after being out for so long.

Samuels is a very promising young talent.

If he can incorporate certain parts of Jimenez’s game into his own, then perhaps he won’t have to wait too long for that competitive first-team debut.
