Seamus is back with a bang. Coleman returns for Everton.
Everton fullback Seamus Coleman returned to action lastnight following his long layoff with a broken leg and immediately flew into a crunching tackle to alleviate concerns of any doubts he was concerned over his leg.
Coleman turned out for Everton under 23’s against Portsmouth playing 59 minutes in the encounter and flew into a crunching slidey on 20 minutes and after the match he said that tackle was for the fans.
“That was more for me than it was the young lad!” he told Everton’s club website. “I just told him that at the time as well and he was fine with it.
“I knew tackles and things like that were never going to be a bother. That one was more for the few fans that were here that there are no psychological affects.”
“I enjoyed the game. It was great for it to be here at Goodison Park– it made it that little bit more special. They tried to change the game when I could be involved and thankfully they have been able to do it.
“To be able to walk out the tunnel and see the stadium was great. I managed to get some minutes under my belt and that was fantastic. I treated it like a first team game and gave it everything.
“I’ve been looking forward to that moment for the last few months – just being able to get the kit on, doing up the shin-pads, rolling my socks up and walking out there. It was great to be able to feel like a footballer again – it’s a fantastic feeling.”
Can Seamus get back to his best?
