Coleman back in preliminary light training

Friday 11 August 2017  20 Comments  [Jump to last]

Seamus Coleman has taken his rehabilitation from his double leg break to the next stage, with strength-building drills outside at Finch Farm.

The 28-year-old has been out of action since March when he suffered the awful injury in a World Cup qualifying match against Wales.

Coleman's return to full action isn't anticipated until the end of this year at the earliest but it is heartening to see that he is on schedule and has, thus far, not experienced any setbacks.

Coleman, who donated over £7,000 to Everton In The Community's Home Is Where The Heart Is Campaign this week, is reported by the club's official site to have gone through running exercises at the Blues' training facility today.

Good news.

And nice gesture re the £7k.

Great news. Any sort of running within six months of that injury is a good indication.

Already my favourite player of recent times but fast becoming one of my all time favourites. He's humble, generous, hard working, honest and a hell of a right wing back. And he cost £60 grand!!!

Great for Seamus and for all his Everton and Irish fans. Hopefully back soon, in his glorious full flow bombing down the right wing, elbowing some bewildered defender out the way and blasting it past the keeper.

We've missed him.

Looks like Seamus will get a game before Kenny!

Great to see Seamus back in training. Get fit soon because unfortunately the Dutchman doesn't know a good right back when he sees one!

Totally agree with Lee (#5) – Seamus Coleman epitomises a lot of what is good about this club.

Skipper for me as soon as he is fit.

Imagine the roar when he steps back on the Goodison pitch.

I can't wait.

Whatever it takes, I'm not going to miss Seamus's first game back. Great ambassador for a great club!

My favorite Everton player – he has a heart of a lion! I can see why he is captain material because he is the first to put himself on the front line.

I was genuinely down for a few days after his injury cos it was wrong on so many levels (stupid challenge, meaningless game - well for me, inflicted by a unnecessary challenge by an unknown - well for me.. etc).

I pretend than he will come back stronger but I pretend that Rooney is 21 too...

Good to see. Will be a huge boost when he returns... I'm thinking with his heart he won't miss a beat and will be flying up the pitch! :-)

Saw him today... said he's feeling good! Can't wait to have him back.

Was great to see Seamus outside the ground before the Europa qualifier, happily signing autographs whilst being mobbed by his adoring fans! Can't wait for him to come back, hope the rest of his recovery goes smoothly

Brilliant news. Having been at the game Saturday we sure as hell need a right back. Can't wait till he's fit again. Armband on him please Mr Koeman.

Yep, the difference between Koeman and Pochettino encapsulated in the teams at the weekend. Spurs play one of the U20 Internationals to cover missing players at right back who in-turn is superb on debut; whilst instead of our at least equally talented option, play firstly a centre forward and then an inadequate journeyman in his position.

Seasons come and go but one thing will be for certain. James McCarthy has just being picked again for the Republic of Ireland to get injured again, and Coleman will be fit playing for Everton before McCarthy will ever be.
