Raul Jimenez sends message to Wolves fans after Norwich City draw

Raul Jimenez believes that Wolverhampton Wanderers are capable of doing “better” following their 0-0 stalemate at promoted Norwich City yesterday.

The Mexican was hoping to score in back-to-back Premier League games for the first time this season, but he was unable to break the deadlock against the Canaries.

Instead, it was the hosts who had the better of the chances at Carrow Road.

If it wasn’t for yet another inspired performance by Jose Sa, Bruno Lage’s men could have come away from the trip to Norfolk empty-handed.

The former Benfica man’s side only registered two shots on Tim Krul’s goal, whereas Dean Smith’s team hit the target on four occasions.

Raul Jimenez’s message

Expressing his frustration at the result and performance on Instagram after the game, Jimenez, who earns £41,231 per week as salary (Spotrac), sent a message to the Wolves fans.

The striker wrote on Instagram: “We know we can do it better, we will keep working.”

Missed chance for Wolves

After beating West Ham United 1-0 last weekend, Lage’s men had the chance to close the gap on the Hammers down to one point.

That would have piled the pressure on David Moyes’ side, who currently occupy the final Champions League place, ahead of the Hammers’ trip to Manchester City today.

But Wolves and Jimenez will have to shrug off the disappointment ahead of welcoming Burnley to Molineux on Wednesday.

After the midweek clash against Sean Dyche’s side, Wolves welcome a Liverpool side, who have Diogo Jota banging the goals in, to the Black Country on Saturday.

With the games coming thick and fast now, Wolves enter a crucial period where if they come out of the hectic festive season still in and around the European places, we will fancy our chances of achieving something special.
