Everton defender Keane full of praise for Gomes after playing return

Everton defender Michael Keane is full of praise for Andre Gomes after his playing return.

Gomes made his comeback in Everton's clash with Arsenal on 23 February, playing the final 30 minutes of the game at Emirates Stadium. His return to first-team action came just three and a half months after suffering a fractured ankle.

“It's an absolute joy to see Andre playing again," Keane told evertonfc.com.

“He's a credit to himself, his family and the Football Club.

“His work ethic is second to none. He's been in the gym non-stop and strengthening his leg.

“His ability is there for all to see. He's an excellent player.

“He's deserves so much credit, as do all the people who have looked after him and helped him get back as quickly as possible.

“He'll keep getting better as well."
