Everton midfielder Andre Gomes is expected to make full recovery from surgery on his ankle injury, the club revealed.
The Portuguese international suffers fractured dislocation on his ankle during Tottenham Hotspur versus Everton 1-1 draw when Son Heung- Min brought him down and earned a red card as a result.
Everton released a statement revealing that Gomes’ surgery went extremely well and he will recover in a hospital before starting his rehabilitation under the guidance of Everton’s medical staff.
The club’s statement added, “On behalf of Andre, the club would like to thank all Everton supporters and members of the wider football family for the overwhelming messages of support we have received since yesterday’s match.”
Meanwhile, Cenk Tuson who scored the equalizer for Everton said he wished he didn’t score the goal if it meant Gomes would suffer from his horrible injury.
“You win, you draw, you lose but all that doesn’t matter when something like this happens,”
“I wish I didn’t score; I wish we lost 0-5 and this didn’t happen. I know you will come back stronger bro and we will be there for you.” He wrote on instagram.
