Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo admits he was afraid for Raul Jimenez after the striker suffered a fractured skull.
The Mexico international needed surgery after a clash of heads with David Luiz in Sunday’s 2-1 win at Arsenal.
Jimenez remains in hospital but is expected to be discharged next week with club doctor Matt Perry describing his initial progress as excellent.
“It was very serious and everyone was afraid, everyone was worried. As the days go by and, knowing he is being taken good care of, we have been able to return to a normal situation.
“Now we have to stick together and all our thoughts and prayers go to Raul.
“Everything goes through your mind, you see someone you really love in a tough situation. You are worried, first of all because we all love Raul and he means so much to us, it’s like someone in the family.”
