“It’s a dream” – Mexico’s Jimenez stars in another Wolves win


Raul Jimenez is living the stuff of dreams for seventh-place Wolverhampton Wanderers.

[ RECAP: Wolves 3-0 West Ham ]

Wolves hammered West Ham United 3-0 on Tuesday behind the strength of a brace from their Mexican forward.

“It’s a dream,” Jimenez said. “When I was in Mexico I always saw the games here with all the intensity and passion but now I am here making my dreams come true and I am going to keep working to give the supporters happiness.”

Jimenez now has eight goals and six assists on loan from Benfica, and Wolves supporters will be anxious to lock up their big talisman.

Wolves have a 8W-3D-1L record when the El Tri 27-year-old scores or assists.

Romain Saiss scored the other goal for Wolves, who are in pole position to qualify for the Europa League. He’s also scored against Chelsea and twice versus Spurs.

“We always keep going forward to score, maybe the goals sometimes appear, sometimes I have to assist or provide the movements for others to score.

“I feel an important part of the team and that gives me confidence that things are coming. When you hear the fans shouting your name it is an amazing feeling.”
