“A star player”, “Wasted” - These Everton fans react to Mirallas departure

Everton have officially confirmed the departure of Kevin Mirallas. The 31-year-old winger has joined Royal Antwerp on a free transfer. He has signed a one-year deal with the Belgian outfit.

The move ends Mirallas’ seven year stay at Goodison Park. However, he has not been a regular starter on Merseyside for a number of years. In recent seasons, the Belgian has spent loan stints with Olympiacos and Fiorentina. 

However, Mirallas was at one time a key figure for the Toffees. He leaves the club having made a total of 186 appearances in all competitions, scoring 38 goals and registering 34 assists. He showed some real quality at times, and there are some highlights of his time on Merseyside. However, the 60-cap Belgium international failed to ever really fulfil his potential and make the most of his talent.

Clearly, this move was in his best interests. There is no room for Mirallas in Marco Silva’s squad. It was important for the club to simply get the winger’s wages off of their books. The fact that they allowed him to leave on a free transfer indicates how for removed from the first team picture he was.
