Everton’s Coleman back in training, says Allardyce

  • Coleman returned to training on Tuesday, January
  • The Everton defender sustained a broken leg while playing for Ireland in 2017
  • Sam Allardyce revealed this on Tuesday during Everton’s general meeting

Everton defender Seamus Coleman has returned to training as he continues his recovery from a broken leg sustained while playing for Ireland last year, the Premier League club’s manager Sam Allardyce has said.

Coleman last featured in Ireland’s World Cup qualifier against Wales last March when he suffered the injury.

“Seamus Coleman is due back. He has started training,” Allardyce said at Everton’s general meeting on Tuesday.

The 29-year-old’s return will be a welcome boost for Everton, who have regained some decent form under Allardyce and climbed to ninth in the league.
