Some Everton fans have responded to Joel Robles’s message on social networking site Twitter following his goalkeeper’s move to Real Betis.
The 28-year-old Spaniard has moved to Betis on a free transfer after his contract with Everton came to an end at the end of last month.
The former Spain Under-23 goalkeeper made the switch to the Toffees from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2013.
Robles failed to establish himself as the first-choice goalkeeper at Everton, but some of the Merseyside club’s fans are disappointed to see the Spaniard leave and have responded to his heartfelt message on Twitter.
Betis finished sixth in La Liga last season and will feature in the group stage of the 2018-19 Europa League campaign.
As for Everton, the Merseyside outfit will be aiming to break into the top six of the Premier League next season.
