Silva: Gomes may return this season
Marco Silva, the Everton manager, says it is possible midfielder Andre Gomes will play again this season as he starts his recovery from the horrific ankle injury suffered against Tottenham Hotspur.
Gomes faces a long rehabilitation but, after successful surgery, Everton are optimistic about his return.
“Everything went well and we hope we can see him playing again this season,” Silva said. “It’s not easy to give an exact date of when he will return but in our mind, and the feedback from our medical staff, that is possible. It is not something we can be 100 per cent sure on, but there are lots of positives.”
Spurs’ Son Heung-min has texted Gomes to express his regret that his late challenge led to the injury.
