Yannick Bolasie is on a long road to recovery after his serious injury blow, but he provided a positive update via social media on Wednesday.
The Everton winger has been on the sidelines since suffering a knee problem following a tussle with Anthony Martial in the 1-1 draw with Manchester United on December 4.
He was initially ruled out for the rest of the season with cruciate ligament damage, but the extent of the problem was proved to be worse when additional scans revealed that he had torn his meniscus.
The club have not given a definitive timeline for Bolasie’s recovery, but it is unlikely that he will be fit in time for the start of the 2017-18 campaign.
Due to the winger being forced onto the treatment table, he has only been able to make 15 appearances in all competitions.
It was a damaging blow to the 27-year-old, who had shown promise following his summer transfer from Crystal Palace, which reportedly cost £25m.
On Wednesday, the Congo international provided an update to fans via a video from his hospital bed after undergoing a second operation to repair the ruptured ligament.
The good news for Bolasie and the Everton fans is that the surgery was a success, but the bad news is his return to action will not be for a while yet.
