Everton midfielder Andre Gomes: I feel honoured playing for this club

Andre Gomes says he feels honoured to play for Everton.

Gomes broke his ankle last November and missed three months of football.

And the Portuguese has been overwhelmed by the supporter given to him by the club and its supporters.

Gomes said: "It's really good news. I think it is really important, especially now with the pandemic. People have more issues probably. I think it's really good.

"It is an honour to be part of the club. Such a special club with all these type of opportunities.

"For me during my rehab it was important to have the physios, the club and people around me to give me a hand if I needed something.

"I was a lucky person that I had that but some people don't have that.

"Sometimes people have their own issues and don't have people on the side to help. The club is doing a really good job to try to help everybody that needs it."
