Raul Jimenez is back! Wolves striker returns to the starting XI to play pre-season friendly against Crewe.. 230 days after fracturing his skull in horrific clash with Arsenal's David Luiz
Jimenez, 30, was taken to hospital for severe trauma, and was eventually judged to be conscious, although he fractured his skull in the incident.
That effectively ended his season, with Wolves struggling to replace him up front, trying teenager Fabio Silva and loanee Willian Jose as a forward, without significant success.
But now, after 230 days, Wolves announced via the club's official Twitter account that Jimenez has now returned to the starting XI in a pre-season friendly against Crewe Alexandra.
Their post read: 'We have some big news...' followed by a wolf and Mexican flag emoji and a 'Jimenez is back' graphic.
