The player was called up, however, El Tri is clear that they will not have him for next week’s matches.
Gerardo Martino made his list of names, in which he included Raul Jimenez, but sources close to the Mexican team confirmed what was indicated at the time by ESPN Digital, that the player was not loaned by the Wolverhampton of England, reason why the Tri will concentrate with only two center forwards: Rogelio Funes Mori and Henry Martín.
This portal was told that despite the request for Raul Jimenez Wolves were sent in due time and form, the Premier League board of directors gave a categorical refusal, given the agreement that exists not to release players for matches in countries included in the UK’s red list for the next international break.
This is based on the fact that according to the guidelines of the government of that European nation, anyone who returns from a country on the red list must be in quarantine for 10 full days, which means that players could miss several games with their clubs.
The name of Raul Jimenez it appeared on the list “because it was already done and for some reason they didn’t want to take it off the list, but they won’t let it come,” he told himself.
In this way, Gerardo Martino will stay with Funes mori and Martín, because at the time Alan Pulido’s request was not made to Sporting Kansas City and if they wanted to request it at this time, they would not lend them, since to request an MLS player they must do so 15 days in advance .
It is not ruled out that the cruzazulino Santiago Gimenez, who was called up to the U21 National Team, which concentrates next Monday, could occupy a last-minute place with the Tri of ‘Tata’ Martino in case of an eventuality.
It should be noted that Mexico I would be calm and without much concern, despite not being able to count on Raul Jimenezas Jamaica, its rival on September 2, would be more affected by the agreement in the United Kingdom, given that it has nine players with dual nationality who serve in the Premier League.
Finally, this portal also addressed the Wolverhampton, where a spokesperson confirmed that the board does not plan to loan the player “for the moment.”
