Everton fans rave about senior man after uplifting Twitter post

By Dominic Toner

Everton manager Ronald Koeman revealed he went to visit injured defender Seamus Coleman – and the club’s supporters were delighted on Twitter with the unity being shown.

The Dutch manager has become an instant favourite at Goodison Park following his summer arrival and helped the Toffees up to seventh in the Premier League table.

The Merseyside club look set to gain European qualification this campaign after an 11th-placed finish last season.

However, one of the rare bleak moments this season was when right-back Coleman suffered a double leg break while on international duty.

The 28-year-old was injured in the Republic of Ireland’s World Cup qualifier against Wales after a challenge by Neil Taylor in March.

Koeman has explained that he went to visit the defender on Tuesday and he was joined by Phil Jagielka.

“Today we visit Seamus Coleman and his family. Looking strong and positive,” Koeman wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Everton fans were raving about Koeman following the post and highlighted the qualities of his man management skills.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Coleman has been a crucial for Everton during his time with the club and established himself as a regular under Koeman.

The attack-minded full-back has made 28 appearances this season across all competitions, chipping in with four goals and four assists.

His absence has given youngster Mason Holgate the chance to impress in the first team, but the Toffees will certainly be missing the influential Coleman during the coming months.
