Bruno Lage claims that Raul Jimenez’s ‘chronic weariness’ is the reason he gave Sasa Kalajdzic his first start for Wolverhampton Wanderers. Wolves paid £15.4 million to acquire Kalajdzic from Stuttgart, but he didn’t have enough time to acclimate to his new team before their match against Southampton. Daniel Podence scored the game-winning goal for Wolves in first-half stoppage time, and the Wolves beat the Saints 1-0 at Molineux.

Lage remarked, “I was about the need,” when asked why he decided to throw Kalajdzic into the game. After not having Raul participate in the preseason, we immediately put him into three consecutive games. It was very difficult for him to take a seat on the bench. He tried to run, but he was plagued by minor injuries and persistent exhaustion, just like we are.
Lage continued, “Instead of him being absent for ten minutes, we have another guy to assist.” Towards the end of the first half, Kalajdzic was injured and had to be replaced. The forward fell to the ground, clutching his knee, and was eventually taken off due to a serious injury. Nothing outstanding, according to Lage. For 45 minutes, he played at a high level, and that’s what counts.
Raul Alonso Jiménez Rodrguez is a professional footballer who lines up in the forward position for both Wolverhampton Wanderers of the Premier League and the Mexican national team.
Jiménez started out in the Club América youth system before making his professional debut in October 2011. In 2013, he led América to their first championship by scoring two goals and was named to the Clausura All-Star Team. James Jiménez signed with Spanish club Atlético Madrid in August of 2014. After one year, he moved on to Benfica, where he would go on to win two league titles in a row and a slew of other awards.
In his three seasons with the Portuguese club, he made 120 appearances and netted 31 goals. After joining Wolverhampton Wanderers on loan in June 2018, Jiménez finished the season as the club’s leading scorer with 17 goals. After playing briefly for Wolves in 2019, he committed to the club for good the following year, where he established himself as an integral and productive striker despite missing nine months due to a catastrophic head injury he sustained in November 2020.
Jiménez was a member of the Mexican U-23 team that won the Olympic gold medal in 2012. As a full national team player since 2013, Jiménez has competed for Mexico in the 2014 and 2018 FIFA World Cups, the 2013 and 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup, the 2013 and 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, the 2015 Copa América, and the 2015 Copa América Centenario.
