Everton’s Andre Gomes has been released from hospital.
The Portuguese midfielder had an operation on his fractured and dislocated ankle, which was successful, and he will now recover at home with Everton’s medical team overseeing his rehabilitation.
Everton released the following statement on Tuesday, as well wishes poured in from across the globe after Gomes suffered the horrendous injury against Tottenham on Sunday.
“Following a successful operation yesterday, Andre Gomes has now been discharged from hospital and will continue his rehabilitation under the care of our medical team.”
Gomes suffered the injury falling to the ground after being brought down by Tottenham’s Heung-Min Son, and then being tackled by Serge Aurier.
Son was sent off (something which Tottenham have appealed) and left the pitch in tears, and Aurier was so distressed he had to be substituted.
The reaction from players on the pitch, fans in the stand nearby and people watching all over the world was one of horror as Gomes suffered the horrendous injury.
His long journey to a full recovery begins now.
