Michael Ball has been left stunned by Farhad Moshiri delivering on his promise to build a new stadium for Everton, as work continues to progress, writes the Goodison News.
The Bramley-Moore Dock site is really starting to come along as the Toffees get ready to leave Goodison Park behind and start a new era in the Premier League.
Ball admitted that he was wowed by the “top class” stadium with the thoughts of over 50,000 fans there starting to build excitement around the site.
Speaking to the Liverpool ECHO for his latest column, Ball cannot believe his eyes at the work currently taking place at the Dock as it progresses.
“The owner Farhad Moshiri has backed up his promise to build Everton a new stadium, though, and through a combination of the updates from the club and drone footage, it already looks fantastic,” he said.
“People are seeing it from the river when they’re on boats and you can see it rising from the ground.
“I’m thinking, ‘wow, I can’t wait for this to happen now’ it’s totally changed my mindset and seeing is believing. It’s going to be a top-class, modern football stadium right on the banks of the Mersey and what a spectacle it will be when there are over 52,000 fans in there with – fingers crossed – a decent team to match.”
