Everton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has sent a message to the club’s fans following leaving the field after only 30 minutes against Hull City on Saturday.

The France international picked up a calf strain in the 4-0 victory over the Tigers and was replaced by Gareth Barry early in the Premier League fixture.

As can be seen above, Schneiderlin is facing a spell on the sidelines following his latest setback but has vowed to return to first-team action as soon as he can.

The combative midfielder has been an instant hit at Goodison Park following a January transfer from Manchester United, with the new man adding energy and physicality to Ronald Koeman’s team.

The news of Schneiderlin’s injury will be especially galling given that Everton have fierce rivals Liverpool to play after the international break, with the star facing a race against time to be fit enough to feature.

Koeman has admitted he is worried about the Frenchman’s blow, with it seeming likely that Idrissa Gueye and Barry will have to fill the void left by the big-money signing.
