Cristiano Ronaldo sends touching message to Andre Gomes after horror injury

Portugal skipper Cristiano Ronaldo sent a social media message to his international teammate and Everton midfielder.

Gomes is facing up to a year out after he suffered a horror injury during the 1-1 draw with Tottenham at Goodison Park on Sunday.

The Portuguese midfielder was caught by a late challenge from Son Heung-min before colliding with Serge Aurier.

Gomes underwent surgery on Monday and Everton have confirmed they expect him to make a full recovery, amid initial fears his career could be in danger.

He has received messages of support from across football and Portuguese teammate Ronaldo has sent his own.

Posting a picture of the pair on international duty, Ronaldo prayed for a fast recovery and vowed Gomes "will come back stronger".

"Andre will have all the support he needs. I am 100% sure he will become stronger as a football player and a man.

"He is a fantastic man and a fantastic professional. Our players are sad but the spirit we showed was a good answer."
