Everton midfielder Andre Gomes has said that he is “sensitive and emotional” after receiving countless messages of support following the serious injury he suffered earlier this month.
The Toffees have been inundated with letters, emails and gifts for the Portugal midfielder following the horrific injury he sustained during the Premier League clash with Tottenham.
Gomes has had an operation and he is expected to make a full recovery, with the club hopeful he may return to action before the end of the season.
As he begins the rehabilitation process at Finch Farm, Everton sat the 26-year-old down and showed him some of the support he had received in the form of letters and emails.
A visibly touched Gomes told evertonfc.com: “I have a lot of letters here, I will try to take my time at home just to read everything.
“Honestly guys, it’s almost impossible to put into words. I feel sensitive and emotional because of what you have done for me.
“I just need to thank you all. It’s emotion. And I will be back stronger for sure. To everyone, thank you.”
On the field, Everton and boss Marco Silva are under pressure following their 2-0 defeat to then-bottom side Norwich last weekend.
