Roberto Martinez explained the full extent of Bryan Oviedo´s injury in his post-match interview.

Speaking after the 4-0 win over Stevenage, the Boss revealed that the Costa Rican has been taken to hospital and will have surgery on a double fracture of the left left on Monday.

“The injury to Bryan was very unfortunate,” he said. “It wasn´t malicious, Bryan is trying to win the ball back and unfortunately has come away with a double fracture, a break in both the tibia and fibula.

“We are going to assess now what is the next step for Bryan. It is one of those moments that really gives you a bad taste.

“After the injury, the players had to refocus because Bryan is a nice human being and an incredible professional. When something like this happens it gives you a really bad feeling.”

The injury comes as a blow to the Costa Rican who was currently enjoying a run in the first-team.

Martinez added: “If you are going to pick up an injury like this, at least this season has been Bryan Oviedo´s season. With his level, he has shown the quality that he has and the player that he can be.”

Every Evertonian wishes Bryan well and a speedy recovery
