Everton boss Silva: Gbamin has our full support

Everton boss Marco Silva says he will support Jean-Philippe Gbamin every day as the midfielder recovers from an injury problem.

The setback will sideline him for a minimum of eight weeks.

“It is really important that we support JP," Silva told evertontv.

“We have to be there in the bad moments.

“When they [players] are in a good moment, you might just say 'good morning', and leave them to train and enjoy the day. That is enough.

“But when they are in a not-so-good moment, they need all the support we can give them, starting from me as manager, to all the staff and their teammates."

The manager added: “It is up to us to give him all the support we can, not just to recover him as fast as possible – but the daily support for him to be optimistic about the situation, even in a tough moment.

“I am 100 per cent involved in the process.

“It is the worst thing for a football player when they are injured and cannot help the team or enjoy being at Finch Farm with their teammates every day."
