Wolves forward Raul Jimenez has revealed that he was told by doctors it was a miracle he survived a skull fracture last year.
The Mexican was placed on oxygen on the pitch after he collided head-to-head with Arsenal defender David Luiz last November.
After nine months out, Jimenez played 90 minutes in the 1-0 loss to Leicester City last weekend.
“Since the first moment, the surgeons and doctors told me what happened and the risks,” Jimenez said.
“Sometimes it’s not what you want to hear but it’s their job. They told me it was a miracle to be here.
“The bone had broken and there was a little bit of bleeding inside my brain. That’s why the surgery had to be quick and it was a really good job from the doctors.
“Since the beginning, they were really supportive with me. The skull fracture took a little bit longer than we all expected to heal and it really is a miracle for me to be here with you.”
