Seamus Coleman pens new five year contract at Everton
"Everything had been agreed and I was due to sign it after the international break but unfortunately I got the injury. The chairman messaged me the night of my injury and said, ‘don’t worry about it because when you come back this contract is still waiting for you’. That sums up what the chairman and this club is all about. “Farhad Moshiri (Everton’s major shareholder) also sent me cards and said the support was always going to be there. I’m delighted with how the club has handled the situation. Knowing that I was going to come back and sign it has definitely helped things. "It’s a massive boost and gives me something to fight for. I want to prove my worth when I come back and show the club were right for rewarding me with this long-term contract.” Coleman also provided an update on his recovery, which is progressing well. “I’m starting to put more weight through the leg and I have got no pain. I’m back doing a good bit in the gym and in the pool. I’m doing exercise every day, so the recovery has well and truly started. I’m really looking forward to putting on that blue shirt again.” This article originally appeared on You Boys In Green.
