Wolves captain Conor Coady has reported that since his sickly clash with David Luiz, Raul Jimenez is on the way to recovery.
After the strike, the Mexican ace needed lengthy treatment early in the Premier League encounter with Arsenal.
With Sky Sports confirming that Jimenez was rushing to the hospital and later conscious and responding to treatment, Wolves went on to win 2-1.
And while sending best wishes to Luiz, who fought on before being replaced at half-time, Coady reported the good news.
“When it happened, we didn’t like it. It was something you knew right away,” Coady said.
We hope that David Luiz is OK too, because it was a terrible clash of heads. It’s going to happen in football, but you don’t want to see it. I hope both sets of teams went out and played properly and got it correctly.
It was a tough thing that happened, so we just hope and pray that all is all right, because that’s the one thing we’re worried about right now.
I was right behind him at the front, so I jumped with him as well and you saw it, and he was just on his side as he fell.
I think it was important for us to keep him on his side and get the doctors on, but it’s something we never want to see in the Premier League for our team-mate or anybody.
I hope and I pray that it’s all OK, because it’s the only thing today that matters. We’ve had a wonderful outcome, but the only thing that matters is to make sure that both Raul and David Luiz are OK.
He [Jimenez] is in the hospital and he is conscious and breathing, from all means. The one thing we’re looking at is that.
I don’t know that many, I haven’t been there, but the first thing we asked about when we walked in was how Raul was doing.
“In these situations, people’s health and heads and bodies are more important.”
“Nuno Espirito Santo, the boss of Wolves, added: “Raul Jimenez is now having a scan. He’s conscious. Within the seriousness of the matter, he’s OK.
“You start listening to the red code [at the time]. That is serious. For all it was a bad moment.
In their [medical staff] eyes, you see fear and you start thinking, how is he? We are scared.
“He speaks, he’s aware. We have to have a proper assessment. He’s in good hands.”
