Wolves talisman Raul Jimenez is continuing his recovery from the injury which derailed his season.
The Mexican striker reportedly hasn’t given up hope of playing again before the end of 2020/21.
Sunday’s 4-0 loss to Burnley cemented how much Wolves are missing Jimenez, with the Clarets’ main striker Chris Wood hammering home a hat-trick.
Jimenez had a message for the Wolves fans on Twitter as he continues his bid to return to full fitness.
Jimenez used an emoji indicating ‘soon’. Does that mean he will be back before the end of the season?

It would be a boost to have him back out there, but ultimately it’s not worth risking him if he’s not 100 per cent ready.
Wolves have absolutely nothing to play for and any setback for Jimenez which disrupts his pre-season would be a hammer blow.
The feeling persists that it’s best to just let him take his time with his return and come back ready to hit the ground running in pre-season.
This season has shown hos important Jimenez is for Wolves. Imagine Tottenham without Harry Kane.
You get the idea. Fabio Silva was brought in to most likely learn from him for a season and be his backup, but was suddenly thrust centre stage with all the expectation which goes with a club record signing.
The Mexican international’s return should bring an upturn in Wolves’ fortunes next season.
But the message does further raise the prospect he will play again this term.
