Jimenez aiming to fire Wolves into top four spots once Premier League resumes

Raul Jimenez believes Wolves are capable of securing a top four finish and Champions League qualification once the Premier League season eventually resumes.

English football is currently suspended amid the coronavirus crisis, with Wolves currently sitting sixth in the division and just five points behind Chelsea in the race to secure a top-four finish.

It has proven to be another memorable campaign for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side after their impressive return to the Premier League last season, and Jimenez believes his teammates are capable of securing Champions League football and achieving even more once football returns to normality.

“It’s big for a team that was promoted [two years ago] and this is only our second season in the Premier League,” he said on the club’s top four hopes, as per Sky Sports. “We know that we can do it.

“We can fight for it and I don’t think we’re going to be disappointed if we don’t do it but now that we see that we can do it.

“It’s incredible to be part of this team, part of this family, we are all working hard to achieve our goal and I’m really enjoying playing with my team-mates.

“Every one of us adds his little piece to what we are doing. I was really enjoying the season, I know it’s not finished yet and we know that we have to keep fighting for the places that we want.”

The Mexican has netted 13 league goals in 29 outings for the Black Country club this season, already matching the tally he registered last season.
