The game was postponed for ten minutes when Portuguese striker Jimenez was given oxygen before he left on a stretcher and was hospitalized. Both teams were in shock because of the serious injury.

“Raul is feeling well after an operation he performed in a London hospital last night,” Wolves confirmed on Monday.
“He has since seen his partner Daniela and is now resting. He has our love and support as he begins a period of recovery.”
Wolf Captain Conor Coady was one of the players closest to Jimenez when he was moored. “You don’t want to see that on a football pitch,” the defender told Sky Sports.
“It’s awful to see. I’ll be honest with you, I just heard it. I jumped with both of them when the ball hit the near post.
“You hear the sound. They both fall and you see that they are both there. When you see that they are not really responding, it becomes terrible to see.
I feel sick just watching, to be honest. I can’t imagine how his teammates and Nuno are doing. Prayers and positive vibes all swing at Raul Jimenez.

Let’s hope he’ll get better soon, buddy. Petr Cech had a fractured skull and made a full recovery and played for years. Hopefully he will recover quickly 👍

However, it’s the mentality. Would he want to be fully involved in an air battle again? I mean, Cech wore protection after his.

“First and foremost, the players’ health comes into question. We just hope and pray that he is fine with the kind of person and friend he is.
“He’s a massive part of this football club. He’s a massive friend for everyone in this locker room.”
Wolf chief Nuno Espirito Santo said the striker had spoken and was “aware” after several minutes of medics alerting staff in the back room repeating the phrase “code red”.
“He’s okay in the severity of the problem,” said the coach. “From the reaction of his teammates and everyone … seriously, it was a bad moment for everyone.
“The Arsenal players were worried about him. Now of course we’re worried. They see the panic in their eyes and start to think, ‘How is he?'”
Terrible looking head injury from Raul Jimenez. Hope it’s not as serious as it seems.

The decision to allow Luiz, who had blood from a bandage on his head, to continue until half-time disgruntled pundits and experts and reopened a dispute over the wellbeing of the players that recently hit the headlines after it was discovered that several former players were Players died had brain problems.
“Too often in football we see players returning to the field after a concussion – only to be withdrawn a few minutes later when it is clear they are unable to continue,” warned Luke Griggs, deputy general manager of brain Charity Charity Association Headway.
“It is precisely for this reason that we urgently need a replacement for a concussion in football. You simply cannot take any risks with head injuries.”
“They’re not like muscle injuries where you can turn a player back on and see if they can when they’re turned off. Another blow to the head when affected can have serious consequences.”
“The question that needs to be asked is whether Luiz would have been allowed to return to the field if the concussion replacement rule had come into effect. Would that extra time in the treatment room have resulted in a different decision?”
Get well soon, Raúl Jiménez! I hope you make a speedy recovery. 🙏🏼 #ARSWOL

“Time and again we see that this rhetoric is not confirmed by actions on the field. Something is wrong. This must not be continued. How many warnings does football need?”
Premier League legend Alan Shearer was furious at the footage. “If David Luiz passed all protocols like Arsenal, how on earth is he allowed to come back on the field with a wound dripping down his face?” the ex-England striker asked the BBC.
“We’re talking about life and death and the end of players’ careers. They want to replace concussions.
“What is there in court? It’s been going on for years. It’s not acceptable. We met one by one.

“Why do you need to test something? Just do it. Do it now. If things need to change after that, change it.
“The protocols of football allow someone who has a cut that seeps through a bandage that has just been put on to continue playing. Then they have to leave 20 minutes later because they can’t head a ball.”
Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil, England and Manchester City striker Raheem Sterling and reigning champions Liverpool wished Jimenez well on social media.
