Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Embraced Andre Gomes After He Was Subbed Off

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Embraced Andre Gomes After He Was Subbed Off

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer embraced Andre Gomes in a wonderful gesture after he was substituted in the Premier League game at Goodison Park.

Gomes looked to be out for the rest of the season when he suffered a fracture dislocation of his right ankle in the game against Spurs back in November.

But after undergoing successful surgery, the former Barcelona midfielder made a miraculous recovery and just four months on from the horrible injury blow, he was back on the pitch against Arsenal after entering the fray as a substitute in the 3-2 defeat last week.

And Gomes took another leap forward at the weekend when he lasted 82 minutes in the 1-1 draw with United.

His manager Carlo Ancelotti embraced the Portugal international after he was replaced by Moise Kean but so too did Solskjaer, who went out of his way to hug Gomes and have a brief chat with him.

It's an incredible feat to see Gomes back playing so soon after a brutal injury and Solskjaer, despite managing the opposition on Sunday, was thrilled to see him back.

Solskjaer said: "He's a fantastic player, first of all and the way that he's come back, less than four months after that bad injury, looking the way he does now, is fantastic.

"[It's] great to see. I played with Alan Smith [who broke his leg against Liverpool], ourselves we know how difficult that can be.

"He [Andre Gomes] must have been really doubting how long this would take, so it's great to see him back."
