Everton midfielder Andre Gomes has been discharged from hospital after a successful surgery aimed at fixing a fracture dislocation to his right ankle that occurred during the Everton and Tottenham game.
Andre Gomes, 26, sustained the horrific injury after being tackled by Spurs forward Son Heung-min during Sunday 1-1 Premier League draw with Tottenham at Goodison Park.
Gomes will continue his rehabilitation process under the close supervision of Everton’s medical team till he fully recovered.
A statement from the club on Monday said, ”the surgery went extremely well and Gomes is expected to make a full recovery”.
Gomes had collided with Tottenham forward Son Heung-min, who got red card for a rough tackle, but the mood immediately changed among the players and crowd as the full extent of the injury became apparent.
Son’s red card by referee Martin Atkinson for the challenge was overturned on appeal by the Football Association’s independent regulatory commission on Tuesday.
The match ended 1-1 draw after Turkey forward Cenk Tosun scored a 97th-minute equaliser to earn a point for Everton after Dele Alli’s second-half opener.
