It is unlikely that the 26-year-old will play again this season, although Everton will not set a date for his return.
Everton said in a statement on Tuesday: & # 39; After a successful operation yesterday, Andre Gomes has now been released from the hospital and will continue to rehabilitate under the care of our medical team. & # 39;
His son Heung-min was emotionally left behind after his challenge played a part in the serious injury of Gomes
The good friend and teammate of Gomes Cenk Tosun, who scored the equalizer in the 1-1 draw against Tottenham, said after the game: & Everyone is just so sad.
& # 39; We couldn't even celebrate our point. It was a reasonable point and we deserved it. It was a tough game, after what had happened to lag behind and then the incident with Andre and then the red card, but we showed a great team spirit.
& # 39; The fans, we, the staff. We were all so upset. Some players almost cried. I just went to Andre, I tried to talk to him and try to help him stay calm, but he was in shock. It will be a tough time for Andre, but sometimes in football these injuries happen. & # 39;
