Was this Raul Jimenez’s last game at home to Wolves?

The Mexican striker applauded the fans gathered at Molineux Stadium at the end of the match.

Mexican Raul Jimenez was inactive in Wolverhampton’s one-goal draw against Everton, a game that could represent his last game at the Molineux Stadium. Jimenez didn’t get the opportunity to be active in front of fans devoted to his goals.

Raul Jimenez took to the field to say goodbye to the fans at the end of this Saturday’s game. The forward visited with his family to thank fans for their support.

Jimenez couldn’t hold back tears for what he experienced in what turned out to be his last season with the team that bought him in exchange for $40 million.

Raúl lost the confidence of Julen Lopetegui, who kept him as the starter for part of the second half of the campaign, but he only had 12 playing minutes in the last eight games.

Jimenez was not called up for six consecutive matches due to a technical decision and it was the last match against Manchester United in which he came on as a substitute in a 2–0 defeat.

The 32-year-old center forward has lost all prominence with Wolves, a team in which he became the benchmark and is the club’s top scorer in the Premier League.

A few days back, Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp heaped praise on Mexican striker Raul Jimenez and pointed out that the former America player was one of the best strikers in the Premier League for a long time.

“Jiménez is good, a great player, really incredible. For 4 or 5 years he was unstoppable in the box, a great finisher, a very intelligent striker, I love him”, said the German helmsman.

Jiménez drew criticism from Mexican fans for his inclusion in the pre-list presented by coach Diego Coca for the Nations League.

The Mexican could become one of Wolves’ bargaining chips for the next transfer market with the aim of gaining income and the financial fair play they have for the summer. The Mexican national team’s contract expires in June 2024 and has a market value of $9.7 million.

Wolverhampton’s last game of the season will be against Arsenal next weekend.
