Everton boss Ronald Koeman showed a really nice touch today by taking some time out to visit his stricken player and Irish captain Seamus Coleman. Koeman along with Coleman’s Everton teammate Phil Jagielka were in Killybegs , Coleman’s hometown earlier today to show their support to their teammate where he is recuperating from the horrific double leg brake he suffered against Wales in the recent World Cup qualifier.
Koeman has irked some Irish fans over his recent comments surrounding James McCarthy and how he has been handled by the Irish team’s medical staff which led to an on-line spat with Irish boss Martin O’Neil, but it’s safe to say all is forgiven now.
The Everton boss has been fulsome in his praise for Coleman saying in recent interviews that Coleman is one of the most professional and hardworking players he has ever come across in his career, high praise from a man who has played with and manged some of the world’s biggest clubs.
The Irish captain is an extremely popular part of the toffees set up and has become a firm fans favourite at Goodison Park over the last few years as evidenced by their unveiling of a banner showing their support for their stricken defender in the recent home game against Leicester.
Coleman is on the road to recovery and the good news is he could be back sooner than expected. Some medical experts have said that the Donegal man could be back as early as November which is brilliant news both for his club and country. Get well soon Seamus.
