Everton fans are once again sending their best wishes to Andre Gomes after he endured a nasty ankle injury during the 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur.
A tackle from Son Heung-Min and then a collision with Serge Aurier fractured Gomes’ right ankle, forcing the 26-year-old to be stretchered off the pitch. It was a truly horrific event that will no doubt see the Portugal international ruled out for many months.
Everton released a statement, providing an update on Gomes’ situation, which read: “Following a successful operation yesterday, Andre Gomes has now been discharged from hospital and will continue his rehabilitation under the care of the Everton medical team.
“The Blues midfielder underwent surgery to repair a fracture dislocation to his right ankle yesterday, with the procedure going extremely well.”
The £22m star has been in decent form for the Toffees this season and played a dominant role in the club’s last two Premier League wins over Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United.
In both of those games, the former Barcelona man put in a 7.07 rating and proved he is of great importance to Marco Silva’s squad.
No doubt he will be a huge miss for the team, and fans are right now are just hoping he gets better and comes back stronger.
One supporter said, “thank goodness” with many over fans simply putting “get well soon”.
Here’s what they have had to say about the recent update…
