Everton fans want Coleman to play left-back when he returns

The last 10 months have been agonising for Everton star Seamus Coleman as he has had to recover from a serious injury.

The 29-year-old broke his right leg in two places while playing for the Republic of Ireland in March 2017.

Since then, the Everton star has been working his way back to fitness, and it seems as though he is edging closer to a return to competitive action.

The Irishman made an appearance for the Under-23s on Tuesday night, but it is unclear when he will be welcomed into Sam Allardyce’s squad.

As expected, plenty of fans were delighted by the news that Coleman is building up his fitness.

Others suggested that Coleman should be used to fill the left-back void, which so many supporters are keen for a new player to take on.

Leighton Baines is currently on the treatment table, but at the age of 33, it is time for Everton to start looking for a replacement.

Cuco Martina has been positioned at left-back during his teammates’s absence, but the 28-year-old has failed to impress.

The role is not entirely suited to the Dutchman given that he is predominantly right-footed.

Coleman has played as a right-back throughout his career, but despite this, some fans want him to switch positions if a new player is not bought by the end of the month.
