Raul Jimenez’s huge head scar was seen as he watched Wolves take on Everton from stands on Tuesday.
The Mexican suffered a fractured skull after a nasty head clash with Arsenal’s David Luiz at the Emirates on November 29.
He showed off his war wound as he watched Nuno Espirito Santo’s side lose the clash 2-1.
It is not yet known when the 29-year-old will be able to safely return to action for Wolves.
But he started ‘early fitness work’ just weeks after suffering the horror injury.
Wolves have stressed that it will be a while before the former Benfica frontman is able to play.
A statement read: “Raul is five weeks since his surgery following a fractured skull and is doing some early fitness work, but still has a way to go, however things are going well.”
Club boss Nuno is convinced Jimenez can make a full playing comeback at the highest level.
Jimenez’s dad also insisted the injury ‘won’t have any consequences’ on his playing career.
The striker was discharged from hospital at the start of December after undergoing emergency surgery.
