Gomes excited for Everton debut
Andre Gomes says he is ‘recovering well’ from his hamstring injury and cannot wait to make his Everton debut.
Gomes joined the Toffees on a season-long loan deal from Barcelona on deadline day but he’s had to wait for his first taste of action at the club due to an ongoing hamstring problem.
However, the midfielder is expected to be fit by the end of the month at the latest and the Portugal international admits he’s raring to show what he can do.
‘It’s really good. My team-mates are doing their best every day to talk with me, to try to help me do my best performance. I am feeling more comfortable,’ he told the club’s website.
‘I am injured so I am trying to recover and be back on the field as soon as possible. Of course, it is not good for me because I wanted to be right in to help my team-mates. But I am calm and recovering well. The most important thing is I feel like part of the family.’
Gomes added: ‘I want to play. I want to help. I want to go on the field and show the Evertonians that I can help and do good things. I think the boys are working really hard, I am seeing them every day working hard, so for me it is one more detail to improve myself, be back and work at the levels they are.
‘I will do my best to help the team and make the fans happy. I am working hard on that.’
