Kevin Campbell was left thrilled with the Everton news that Seamus Coleman could be back sooner rather than later after an injury picked up against Leicester City on Monday [1 May].
The Toffees skipper was stretchered off in the 2-2 draw with Leicester on Monday (1 May) following a late tackle by Boubakary Soumare that saw him fall awkwardly and injure his knee.
Coleman released a statement on his social media account on Wednesday (3 May) revealing that he has suffered no ACL damage after undergoing a scan on the extent of the issue and stated he will be back before the end of the season.View Tweet
And reacting to the update provided by the Ireland international, Sky Sports pundit Campbell took to his personal Twitter account.
He tweeted: “Great news and we need you back ASAP Seamus.”
Great news indeed
When Coleman was out recently with a hamstring problem the team suffered badly with performances and slipped further down the table, incredibly missing his leadership, defensive endeavour and aggression when Sean Dyche needed it most.
His return to the team against Leicester City was timely bringing an upturn in performance levels, but the Toffees must now do without him for the foreseeable future, and whether that will come before the season is out in a matter of weeks is unlikely.
But whether, Coleman is on the pitch or off it, his presence in the Everton dressing room will be hugely pivotal seeing as the team are certainly better when he is around.
Understudy Nathan Patterson will need some guidance if he is to play in the remaining four games, and there is no better person to give him that than Coleman. His experience and know-how in such a dour situation for the football club are hugely pivotal.
Whether Everton can follow through with some good results between now and the end of the season remains up to them.
