Ronald Koeman’s visit to Ireland will no doubt boost the recovery of Ireland defender Séamus Coleman following a horrific broken leg in a clash with Welsh defender Neil Taylor during last month’s World Cup qualifier in Dublin.
Coleman is currently recuperating at home in Donegal and was visited by Koeman and Everton captain Phil Jagielka yesterday as well as fitness coach Jan Kluitenberg and head of medical services Matt Connery.
As reported in the Irish Independent, Everton boss Koeman revealed how the recovery process is going for the 28-year-old and when he will return to Everton to start his rehabilitation. The former Barcelona defender also revealed how grateful the right back is for all the messages of support he continues to receive.
“We made the visit to show our support for Séamus, the support of his team-mates and the support he has from all Evertonians.
“Every player in these circumstances needs this level of support to recover well. Séamus is positive and he is feeling strong. He is really grateful for all of the messages he has received from Everton fans and from people all over the world.
“Before he comes back to start his rehabilitation, he will spend up to 10 more days at home in Killybegs before starting out on his recovery from the injury.”
The Irish captain fractured both the tibia and fibula in his right leg with medical expert Matt Radcliffe this week saying it could be possible for the defender to be back playing by December should his recovery go to plan.
