Many Everton fans have reacted positively to Everton’s recent Twitter video featuring Andre Gomes and two young fans.
The Portugal midfielder, who is currently out injured after suffering a fracture dislocation to his right ankle against Spurs in November, is on track to return from his lengthy injury lay-off against Arsenal next week.
In the meantime though, the 26-year old has been the focus of much of Everton’s social media content, the latest of which saw him surprise two young Everton supporters before the Crystal Palace game last weekend.
In the video, Gomes drove the two delighted fans to Goodison Park before the game against the Eagles, where Everton would run out 3-1 victors over Roy Hodgson’s side.
Gomes also took a selfie with the duo and handed them each a scarf, before meeting them pitch-side after the game, giving both of them signed shirts.
Reacting to the near seven minute video on social media, a number of fans praised Everton for the wholesome content, and Andre Gomes for understanding the club and continuing to connect with the fans.
