​Andre Gomes grateful after Everton return

Everton midfielder Andre Gomes expressed his gratitude at being able to return to the game so quickly.

Gomes suffered a broken ankle earlier in the season after a bad tackle from Heung-min Son.

But he recovered rapidly and managed to return during the Blues' 3-2 loss at Arsenal on Sunday.

Despite the result, Gomes was happy to get back on the field.

"I need to thank everyone, the team they were great, my supporters, Evertonians and also football supporters in general, everyone has been wonderful with me," he told Sky Sports.

"Other players, professionals and ex-professionals; everyone has been wonderful so I need to thank you.

"It gives me confidence and it feels like you have the support of the people. I just pushed myself to my limit and wanted to be back as soon as possible. I am glad I have the help of everyone around me."
