What The Papers Say - May 16

Richarlison speaks of his pride at ending his first season at Everton with an award named after the Club’s greatest ever goalscorer in Thursday’s Liverpool Echo.  

The Brazil international, 22, was voted the Blues’ Young Player of the Season by fans, earning him a prize at the end of term awards named in honour of pre-war legend Dixie Dean.

Richarlison, who netted 14 goals in his debut campaign with the Blues, describes it as a "great honour" to have claimed a ‘Dixie’ and also speaks of his determination to build on his good form next term. 

The Echo also lauds the South American for personally handing over 15 of his away shirts to an Everton supporters’ club based in Rio de Janeiro.

The Daily Mirror places Toffees duo Jordan Pickford and Michael Keane in their predicted England squad for the upcoming UEFA Nations League finals, with Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate set to name his provisional party on Thursday.

England will take on the Netherlands in the semi-finals of the tournament before playing a third-place play-off or final against either Switzerland or Portugal.

Back to the Echo, and David Unsworth pays tribute to his double-winning Under-23s squad, saying his players have been a “credit to the Club” this season en route to scooping the Premier League 2 title and Premier League Cup.

The former defender, named an Everton Giant at the aforementioned Dixies, also reserves praise for skipper Morgan Feeney, whose leadership he describes as “unbelievable”.

Finally, the local papers looks at the players who could potentially depart Goodison Park this summer.
