Andre Gomes recently attended a press conference in which he read messages sent by his fans to support him during his recovery. Gomes met with a horrifying injury during Everton's match with Tottenham. It was Spurs' Son Heung-min who made the challenge that injured Gomes. Apparently, the 26-year-old's ankle got twisted and he was left rolling on the pitch. Players from both teams looked distraught and Son Heung-min even apologised publicly for the incident. Andre Gomes will be out of action at least for a season but he is on his way to recovery.
