27-year-old Raul Jimenez has had a pretty bright start to life at Wolverhampton Wanderers as we look to make our mark in the Premier League in the season of 2018/19.
Having arrived on loan from Benfica, the Mexican international has notched up 12 appearances for us so far, returning three goals and four assists, and although his goal return could certainly be higher, his assist levels show the general work rate he puts in as he does a job for the team rather than looking for personal glory.
Whilst that brings benefits and should be applauded, Wolves legend Steve Bull believes that he could be even more influential on the pitch if he developed additional hunger to find the back of the net.
Speaking with Mexican outlet Marca, Bully certainly wasn’t critical of his efforts in the Gold but he did believe Jimenez could round his game more as otherwise he has all the natural skills to be close to perfect in the English top-flight.
“He works very hard, he runs around in every game, he’s one of the best strikers we’ve had in recent years. When he takes shape and develops his full potential, he’ll be fearsome for rivals in the Premier League.”
“He lacks hunger in front of the goal, otherwise he does everything perfect, but if he could score more goals, he would be a rounded player.”
With only 12 games under his belt so far, he is still adjusting to the division and life at the club, so further development should happen quite naturally really.
