What The Papers Say - April 18

The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.

Thursday’s Liverpool Echo reports on how Everton’s proposed new stadium at Bramley Moore Dock is a “huge opportunity for the city region”.

Ian Pollitt from Liverpool Waters – a project which aims to transform the city’s northern docks – explained why the Club’s plans are so significant.

"We are absolutely delighted that, after an exhaustive search for a new football ground, Everton Football Club has chosen Liverpool Waters as its new home,” Pollitt said.

“It has elevated the nature of the project into a completely new realm and has reinforced our proposition to the people of Liverpool and beyond of our intent to create a world-class mixed-use waterfront that can be enjoyed by many people for many purposes.”

The local read also carries quotes from Toffees goalkeeper Joao Virginia, who was part of the Everton Under-23s team that secured the Premier League 2 title with a 1-0 win over closest rivals Brighton & Hove Albion on Monday night.

The 19-year-old, who joined the Blues from Arsenal last summer, detailed how Everton manager Marco Silva and goalkeeping coach Hugo Oliveira have helped to elevate his game.

“They both talk a lot to me and one of the main developments I have had is in consistency,” he said.

The Daily Mail, meanwhile, speculates Tottenham Hotspur could be interested in signing Everton centre-back Michael Keane.
