What The Papers Say - 23 February

Goalkeeper Joel Robles reflects on his recent run of games in Tuesday’s papers.

The Spaniard tells the Liverpool Echo that he is pleased his patience has paid off, and also discusses the preparation that allowed him to save Charlie Daniels' penalty in the FA Cup fifth round win over Bournemouth.

Meanwhile, Michael Ball is full of praise for Robles in his Echo column, saying the 25-year-old's recent showings have boosted his claim to be the Blues' "undisputed number one".

The local paper also report on Everton's warm-weather training camp in Dubai, saying it is hoped the week in the United Arab Emirates will help midfielder Muhamed Besic recover from a troublesome hamstring strain.

Finally, in the national newspapers, the Daily Express suggest Colorado Rapids have been put off signing Tim Howard, while the Daily Star report on Francisco Junior’s permanent move to Norwegian side Stromsgodset.
