Yannick Bolasie is hoping to play again before the end of 2017 as he continues his recovery from a serious knee injury.
The former Crystal Palace winger, who arrived at Goodison Park 10 months ago, has been sidelined since damaging knee ligaments in December 2016. Bolasie has since undergone two separate operations to repair his meniscus and anterior cruciate ligament, and while an initial timeline had him pencilled in for a return in early 2018, he is hoping to comeback ahead of schedule. "Getting back in December would be the best Christmas present. A player like me always wants to be on the pitch." Bolasie also feels that his time out will help to improve his game: "I am going to be subconsciously more cautious with any sharp movements. My old managers - Alan Pardew and Tony Pulis - always felt I would gain more composure with age. Now I have had this injury, I think it will come, but I don't think I will lose my pace or my sprinting - and I feel strong already." Jun 21 - 10:37 AM
