Cenk Tosun opens up on Andre Gomes injury as Everton stars left stunned in dressing room


Cenk Tosun opened up on Andre Gomes’ shock injury during Everton’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham.

Everton star Cenk Tosun explained how Andre Gomes was “crying, shouting and screaming” after his horror injury against Tottenham at Goodison Park.

Gomes was brought down by Son Heung-min’s tackle after 79 minutes while running down the left flank and then collided with Serge Aurier upon landing on the pitch.

Fans and players were then left in shock as the Everton ace’s ankle was twisted 90 degrees to the right from its normal position and his team-mates rushed to his side to console him.

Son was devastated and broke down in tears before referee Martin Atkinson showed him a red card while Serge Aurier was praying for his fellow professional footballer.

Tosun was one of the players who rushed to the Portugal international’s side and revealed that the midfielder was in shock over the incident as the pair exchanged words in the immediate aftermath.

The Turkey international added that the Everton dressing room was bleak at full-time as some players nearly cried for their team-mate.

Gomes was stretchered off of the pitch amid a warm ovation from the crowd and was taken to Aintree hospital.

Tosun said: “Everybody is sad inside.

“Some players, they nearly cried.

“He was in shock, his eyes were open so big. He was like crying, shouting and screaming.

“I just tried to hold him and speak to him, I tried to tell him to stay calm.

“We couldn’t understand him. He was the one who had got the injury.”

Tosun went on to equalise for Everton during stoppage time and canceled out Dele Alli’s stunning opener.

Alli wished Gomes a speedy recovery and revealed that Son was still heartbroken in the dressing room at full time.

The England international said: “I didn’t want to look too much at what happened [to Gomes].

“All I can do is send him my best wishes and wish him a quick recovery.

“I just went into the changing room now and [Son] is devastated, he’s in tears but it’s not his fault.

“Like I’ve said so many times before, Sonny’s one of the nicest people you could ever meet and he’d never mean to do something like that.

“If you see his reaction in there, he can’t even lift his head up he’s crying that much in there.

“But obviously it’s not something you want to see happen to anyone so just have to send our best to him [Gomes].”
