Everton fans are delighted with Coleman’s return

Everton fans are showing the love for fan favourite Seamus Coleman after the Irishman spoke about his return from injury.

Seamus Coleman spoke to Everton’s official YouTube channel this week and needless to say the fans are absolutely loving it.

The 29 year-old Irishman broke his leg on international duty last year after a horror tackle from Wales’ Neil Taylor. He returned to action in the 2-1 win over Leicester at the end of January, and has been gradually building towards full fitness.

Coleman was signed for a remarkable £60,000 back in 2009, and has gone on to make 251 appearances for the Blues, adding 24 goals and 25 assists in that time. There’s no doubt he was a big miss for Everton this year, and the 29 year-old says he was humbled by the support on his return.

“That night in particular (against Leicester), to come out and know every Evertonian in this stadium was really happy to see me back, it is a very humbling feeling,” Coleman said.

Everton fans adore Coleman for his tireless effort and of course his ability, but his understanding of the club and the fans is what really makes him special.

“It just goes to show that if you do things the right way, work hard, be professional, give your all to the cause, that you will get that love back and I definitely felt that.”

Everton fans have been showing their support for the Irishman on Twitter as well, and some of the best reactions can be found below.
