Everton midfielder Andre Gomes has been discharged from hospital two days after suffering a horrific ankle break.

The Portugal international had surgery on Monday on the fracture dislocation of his right ankle that he suffered during the second half of Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham following a challenge from Son Heung-min.

A message from Everton on Twitter read: “Following a successful operation yesterday, Andre Gomes has now been discharged from hospital and will continue his rehabilitation under the care of our medical team.”

Gomes fell awkwardly after being tackled from behind by Son, who was subsequently shown a red card.

The Korean forward was distraught when he saw the extent of the damage to Gomes and a number of other players were visibly shocked and upset.

A statement from Everton on Monday said the operation had gone “extremely well” and that the 26-year-old was expected to make a full recovery.

Gomes is likely to be sidelined for between six months and a year.

Hellas Verona given partial stadium ban over Balotelli racist abuse

Hellas Verona given partial stadium ban over Balotelli racist abuse

Hellas Verona have been handed a partial stadium ban after Brescia striker Mario Balotelli was racially abused by their fans on Sunday.

Former Liverpool and Manchester City striker Balotelli, 29, kicked the ball into the crowd and threatened to walk off the pitch during his side’s 2-1 defeat.

The game was halted by the referee while the stadium announcer read a message to the crowd at the Bentegodi Stadium warning that the match would be abandoned if the abuse were to continue.

On Tuesday, Serie A’s disciplinary commission ordered the closure of the Poltrone Est stand, which houses the club’s Ultra fans.

The commission said on their official website: “(The) racist abuse was clearly audible, not just by the player, but also by the representative of the Federation positioned in the vicinity.”

Meanwhile, Verona have handed a 11-year stadium ban to the head of the Verona ultras, Luca Castellini, for comments he made after the match.

Castellini said on Instagram: “Balotelli is Italian because he has Italian citizenship, but he can never be completely Italian.”

Verona said in a statement on their official website: “Hellas Verona FC announces that it has adopted a disqualification measure against Mr Luca Castellini, who expressed opinions that are seriously contrary to those that distinguish the ethical principles and values ??of our club. A suspension has been handed to the subject until June 30, 2030.”

The sanctions followed earlier reports that four Verona city councillors had urged the council to “take legal action against the footballer and all those who attack Verona by unjustly defaming it”.

Verona’s city mayor Federico Sboarina, who said he was at the match, has denied Balotelli was racially abused.

Sboarina told Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport: “It is a protection of the image of our city. Why should one consider Verona a racist city? It will take its responsibilities.”

Sboarina said he had watched a video taken from the stand where the racial abuse was alleged to have occured.

“We were stunned,” he said. “The referee warned Balotelli, he did not suspend the game. They only hear whistles, the news does not exist. It has been assembled and built on nothing.”

Zidane unfazed by Wales calling up injured Bale

Zidane unfazed by Wales calling up injured Bale

BARCELONA: Zinedine Zidane said on Tuesday he is unfazed by Wales calling up Gareth Bale but insists the Real Madrid forward is still unfit to play.

Zidane also reiterated his desire for Bale to stay at Madrid for the whole season, describing suggestions he wants the 30-year-old to be sold in January as "nonsense".



Bale picked up a calf injury during the last international break in October and has not played any of Madrid's four matches since. He will also miss their game against Galatasaray in the Champions League on Wednesday.

But Wales included Bale in their squad for their two crunch Euro 2020 qualifiers against Azerbaijan and Hungary on November 16 and 19 respectively, as they face a fight to qualify from Group E.

"It doesn't bother me," said Zidane in a press conference. "The first one to suffer is the player, he wants to be involved and if he is not ready to play for Wales, he won't play."

Bale is yet to return to full training and he is not expected to recover in time to play against Eibar in La Liga on Saturday, Madrid's last game before the international break.

There have been suggestions in the Spanish press that Bale is more eager to play for his country than for his club, with Marca carrying the headline on Tuesday: "For Wales, it's a yes".

"Right now he is not ready," Zidane said. "He is not ready to train normally. His country has the right to call him up and what the player wants is to be available.

"But we will see how he is this week and what will happen with Wales and whether he is ready or not. For now, the point is that he is not ready."

Zidane said last summer it would be "best for everyone" if Bale left Madrid but a move to Chinese club Jiangu Suning fell through at the last minute.

Instead, he enjoyed an encouraging start to the season and Zidane has been noticeably more positive in recent weeks about Bale's future.

"People say I want him to leave in January, it's nonsense," Zidane said.

"People can't say I've said what I haven't said. I want him to stay here until the end of the season. He's doing well and I am counting on him."

Madrid play Galatasaray at the Santiago Bernabeu, where victory would put them within touching distance of progessing to the knock-out stages.

"We feel good, we know the situation we are in," said Zidane. "We are just thinking about getting the three points that would practically give us qualification."

As well as Bale, James Rodriguez is unavailable, although Zidane would not clarify the Colombian's injury.

Nacho and Marco Asensio are out with knee and cruciate ligament injuries respectively.
