Following the horrible injury that he got from a Premier League 1-1 match draw at the Goodison Park, Everton midfielder James McCarthy positively announced that his surgery on his broken leg has been successful.
After colliding with Albion’s Salomon Rondon last Saturday, January 20 (GMT +8), McCarthy endured a broken tibia and fibula that led him to be out for rest of the season to recover.
Rondon saw the completely accidental injury and he was devasted as he left in tears.
“Just a quick message to say that my operation went well, thanks to all the staff involved! And a big thanks to all my family, friends and Olivia. Also cheers for all the messages, I appreciate it.” McCarthy said
Everton also confirmed the surgery that went well to their official Twitter page.
“@JMcCarthy_16 has confirmed his operation was successful and thanked everybody for their support. #GetWellSoonJames”
West Brom immediately responded by saying “Great news.” (Sign Up now for more updated news and sports event)
Meanwhile, the 27-year-old striker, who recently returned from an injury lay-off last December of 2017, was playing just his third league match of the campaign.
To lift McCarty’s spirit, his Everton and Republic of Ireland teammate Seamus Coleman gave words of encouragement to his close friend.
“It was obviously heartbreaking for me to see. That’s nothing to do with my own injury – it’s because he is a very close friend. He is someone I really admire and it wasn’t nice to see. James will be back from it. Now I want to go out there every week and do as well as I possibly can to show James that he will be back and he will be fine.” Expressed by Coleman, who made a long-awaited return after suffering from a double leg injury
