Initial estimates suggested heâ€™d be sidelined for around two months but Colemanâ€™s rapid recovery saw him back in a Blue shirt quicker than even he expected.
â€śI surprised myself to be honest,â€ť he told evertontv. â€śI was back training on the Monday and had a really good week. Obviously I was trying to impress the manager, he saw fit to put me in and I was more than happy to play.
â€śIt was very frustrating to get injured when I did,â€ť he added. â€śI was really enjoying that match against Villarreal, it was close to half-time and then I got that dirty tackle.
â€śIt was disappointing to miss the first two games of the season, but I was suspended for one of those so only really missed one league game through injury if you want to look at it positively.
â€śWhen it happened I thought it was broken but you always panic at that stage. I calmed down a bit but it was badly swollen and bruised and we thought I would be out longer.
â€śThere was no exact timescale but thankfully I healed quickly and I wasnâ€™t out for long. I am generally a quick healer and I was itching to get back so I listened to the medical staff and did exactly what they said.â€ť
