Everton supporters have sent their best wishes to Andre Gomes as he spoke publicly for the first time since a successful surgical procedure on his ankle.
The 26-year-old suffered a horrific injury against Tottenham during his side’s 1-1 draw on Sunday. He was brought down by Son Heung-min and got his right ankle caught in the Goodison Park turf.
Should Cenk Tosun be playing more?
The Portugal international suffered a fractured dislocation of his right ankle, and the reaction from the players immediately signified that it was a serious injury that the former Barcelona midfielder sustained.
Son was ‘shaken up‘ after the injury and looked incredibly distressed before he was shown a red card by referee Martin Atkinson.
Thank you for your unconditional support! 🙏

A club statement said the surgery on Monday “went extremely well” and manager Marco Silva said that the club had received “really good” feedback on the Portuguese midfielder.
