Criminal in a football shirt : The Mexican commentator labelled Luiz as a thug and criminal after Jimenez was rendered motionless following the clash of heads
For Mexican commentator, Guillermo Schutz, seeing his countryman Raul Jimenez go down and be stretched off the park against Arsenal was an atrocious sight. Clearly left in anguish after the Mexican striker was taken to the hospital ensuing his and Arsenal’s David Luiz’s clash of heads, Schutz minced no words in smearing Luiz.
“Criminal in a football shirt”
Seething over the challenge, one he termed as a blatant act to injure by Luiz, Guillermo Schutz lambasted the Arsenal CB on Twitter.
Schutz of TUDN Mexico wrote on Twitter: “David Luiz is a criminal in a football shirt.
“You only have to see the image to know the hired thug’s intentions. Wishing a speedy recovery to Raúl Jiménez.”
Raul Jimenez Provides Injury Update
Jimenez meanwhile came out on Twitter to confirm that he’s on the way to recovering from his skull fracture after undergoing a surgery to cure the same. He had endured the injury after an excruciating clash of heads with Luiz as both challenged for the same ball from an Arsenal corner.
Jimenez posted a tweet which read: “Thanks for your support messages. I will be under observation and I hope to return to the pitch soon.”
Wolverhampton also confirmed Raul’s ongoing recovery with a statement from the club reading “Raúl is comfortable following an operation last night, which he underwent in a London hospital.
“He has since seen his partner Daniela and is now resting. He will remain under observation for a few days while he begins his recovery.”
While the club is yet to prove a timeframe on Jimenez’s return to the pitch, as per early reports, he’s set to miss out atleast till the onset of 2021. The injury is a massive setback for Wolverhampton with the club’s striker having top scored for the side across the last couple of seasons to emerge as one of the hottest properties in the footballing arenas.
He had attracted interested from Juventus and a string of other top clubs before Wolverhampton had managed to retain his services for the time to come.
