Everton’s squad is strong, but the return of James McCarthy will undoubtedly make us even better. He hasn’t played since January, owing to a long-term leg injury, and it’s fair to say that we’ve missed his quality in midfield.
Fortunately, he appears to be edging ever closer to a return.
Everton recently shared a short interview with McCarthy on Twitter in which he discusses his injury and his plans for the season. Amidst talk of him discussing the role that Seamus Coleman has played, he also noted how he plans to contribute this season.
“When the chance comes, I’ll be ready and I’ll make sure I give it my all”, he said.
| “The support I’ve had has been different class.”@JMcCarthy_16 says he will give his all to the cause as he closes in on a return from a double leg break.

Clearly, McCarthy isn’t expecting to return and come straight into the side and dominate. He recognises that it’s going to be a slow process even when he’s available again.
However, what’s important here is that he’s eager to make that difference, and Everton fans online are clearly recognising his desire, at least judging by their responses.
Many Everton fans have responded to the Tweet from Everton, and they’re looking forward to his return.
