Kieran Newey, who is part of the Wolves animation group “Matchday Experience Day”, spearheaded the initiative
Fans of Wolves explained the purpose of having made the blanket in support of the Mexican Raúl Jiménez, after the forward suffered a skull fracture after the collision with the Arsenal player, David Luiz. The team’s supporters carried out an initiative to raise funds for the banner, money that was raised in a matter of hours.
“It all came from the injury and not knowing what was happening with Raúl. It was heartbreaking to see him with so many people around him and to be sent to the hospital without knowing if he was going to be okay. The WhatsApp group immediately wanted to find a way to show support Raúl from afar, “he commented Kieran Newey, who is part of the animation group of the Wolves “Matchday Experience Day”.
The follower of Wolverhampton explained what it has become Raul Jimenez for the English box and its fans.
“He is the true forward we have longed for for a long time. He has taken Wolverhampton to his heart and any player who gives his all for Wolves is always admired and adored by the Molineux faithful. That’s why when we saw him hurt on Sunday we knew that we should come together to show him what he means to all of us. “
With this initiative, the followers of the Wolves raised more than 300 thousand pesos to make the blanket, which they hope to show in the match against Aston Villa on the next day of the Premier League.
“We are getting designs by email at email@example.com including some from Mexico, which is amazing! The designs will be put to a public vote before being printed and installed in time for the game of the Aston Villa. Some amazing designs have been submitted and we can’t wait to see the winning banner at Molineux. “
