Plenty of Everton fans have welcomed an update from Carlo Ancelotti on the fitness of James Rodriguez ahead of their game against Southampton on Sunday.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference, the Italian said that the Colombia international trained today and may well be fit to play against the Saints.
Will Rodriguez be a success at Everton?
This comes in contrast to Ancelotti saying that Rodriguez would not be available for the match, as it seems that the 29-year old may have made a miraculous recovery from the injury that he picked up from a tackle by Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk last weekend.
Indeed, Rodriguez may be a key player for the Toffees if they want to return to winning ways in the Premier League, given that the former Real Madrid star has scored three goals and supplied a further four assists in six games in all competitions so far in 2020/21 (Transfermarkt).
Everton fan reaction to Rodriguez update
These Everton supporters lauded the news on Rodriguez via Twitter, with one Toffees fan even branding the Colombian as a ‘sweet prince’:
Yesssss my sweet prince!
