Everton have opted to move away from their famous stadium to a newly-built ground on Bramley Moore Dock, with the club hoping to be playing at the stadium in 2024.

 

Keys, who has a soft spot for Everton due to his time working on Merseyside, is disappointed that Goodison Park is being left as he rates it as one of the top grounds in the game.

 

 

The former Sky Sports anchor insists that Liverpool’s work redeveloping Anfield proves that Goodison Park could also be redeveloped.

 

“I was in at the start of the ‘Kendall years’, but had gone to Manchester before it got really exciting. Pity. I’ve always regretted not being there to see it all come together”, Keys wrote on his blog.

 

 

“There are few better grounds to be in than Goodison when it’s jumping. If I had my way I’d re-develop.

 

“I don’t buy the argument that it can’t be done. Of course it can.

 

 

“They said that about Anfield and look what’s happened.”

 

Liverpool have boosted the capacity of Anfield to over 53,000 and have plans in place to redevelop the Anfield Road end of the ground which would take the capacity above 61,000.
