SALOMON Rondon has sent a goodwill message to James McCarthy after being left "devastated" by the incident which resulted in the Everton midfielder suffering a double leg fracture.
McCarthy was stretchered from the pitch at Goodison Park following his 61st-minute challenge which denied the Albion striker a goalscoring opportunity, with the Premier League encounter finishing in a 1-1 draw.
Rondon was visibly distraught in the aftermath of the accidental collision and hopes to visit a recovering McCarthy, who has suffered a suspected tibia and fibula fracture.
"I am absolutely devastated after such an unfortunate incident," said Rondon.
"I feel really sorry for James.
"Rivalries are forgotten about when a colleague suffers such an unlucky injury.
"Even if the move had resulted in a goal, I would have preferred not to score if it meant an opponent avoided suffering such a terrible injury.
"I wish James a speedy recovery and hope to see him back playing again soon."
Everyone at West Bromwich Albion wishes James a full and speedy return to full fitness.
