Although there were plenty at Goodison Park who felt sorry for the Ivory Coast international as he had just missed the majority of the season with a string of injuries.
The 24-year-old was ruled out for the remainder of the campaign in January but the recent delay had given some hope in him competing once again.
Now he’s going to be out for the rest of the year, yet again.
Unbelievable. Feel sorry for him but it’s no help to us is it

Poor guy is completely and utterly broken.

Whilst there were some fans who were quick to slam the defensive midfielder, brandishing him a “crock” as well as a “sick note”. One member of the Toffees faithful even asked the club to sell him.
There was even question marks raised of Marcel Brands who sanctioned the £25m deal to sign Gbamin in the summer.
Gbamin has played just twice since his switch from Mainz 05.
Paying him millions to sit at home and rehab injuries for almost half his contract

He’s crock unfortunately we can’t rely on him at all for next season I’d be amazed if he played 20 games for Everton

How? The guy must be made of glass!! 🤦🏻♂️

Waste of space. Brands needs grilling over signing him, as Gbamin already had a long list of muscle Injuries. Walsh got sacked for similar poor signings.

This is clearly a rather unfortunate situation for the player but it’s clear to see that not many are happy in Merseyside right now.
AND in other news, Everton fans desperate to see John Stones return amid reports…
