Silva: Gomes may re­turn this sea­son

The Daily Telegraph - Sport - - Sport Football - By Chris Bas­combe

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.
