Mexico coach, Gerardo Martino has come out to say that he is sure Raul Jimenez will be available for the Olympics this summer. Martino recently revealed that despite his serious injury, he expects the Wolves player to be fit to play in the summer tournament.
According to him, Jimenez is already training with the team, even if he is involved in contact training yet, and he is progressing very well.
He, however, added that green light from the doctors would be needed before any decision is taken on the deadly striker.
His words, “Raul is good. He’s training normally with us, apart from contact training. He’s not doing that,”
“When there are some physical contact training exercises, we get him training separately with another member of the coaching staff.”
“In terms of how he’s progressing, we are adhering to the protocols the Wolves team have given us.”
“He hasn’t yet started to engage in contact training at his club, and we are monitoring him medically and in training on the pitch. We are certainly responding to what his team wants in his training.”
“I think we need to see when his club will decide to play him, when he gets the green light from doctors definitively.”
“If Raul doesn’t get back playing towards the end of the season, I think that means we have much less of a chance of having him available.”
“If he does, there is a lot more time looking forward to the Gold Cup and the Olympic Games and him being available for those games.”
“But it all depends on what happens at Wolves in the coming 50 days.”
