Everton defender Seamus Coleman made his long-awaited return to action on Tuesday night as he took to the field of play for the Toffees U23s side in their match against Portsmouth.
The Irish right-back suffered a horrific leg break ten months ago against Wales in March last year and only returned to training this month.
But, after playing 58 minutes of the U23 fixture and helping the youngsters to a 3-0 victory, he will now continue his quest to gain match fitness before returning to Sam Allardyce’s first team.
Up until the fracture, Coleman has been one of the first names in Ronald Koeman’s starting XI and was integral to the Toffees attacking options as he would often galavant down the right, causing mayhem for the opposition.
The 29-year-old will now be pushing for a return to the full squad in the coming weeks
And it’s fair to say that from the response his comeback received on Twitter, the right-back has been sorely missed with one fan saying his reemergence into the side was ‘Better than any signing,’ whilst another commented on his performance saying, ‘Played like he had never been away.’
Here is a selection of what the fans have been saying on Twitter:
