New Everton signing Bernard says that Blues’ boss Marco Silva was a big part of the reason that he has moved to Goodison Park.
Bernard burst onto the scene at the 2014 World Cup for Brazil, but his club career led him away from the international scene.
After becoming a free agent this summer, Bernard was highly sought after, but Marco Silva was able to convince him to join the Blues.
“I chose Everton because of all the things I had heard about Marco Silva and after speaking to him I was happy with what he said to me,” Bernard told evertontv.
“The manager made me feel confident about playing here. He is a very good coach and he has achieved really good things at other clubs.
“Everton is a club with a great structure and a lot of tradition, historically the fourth most successful club in England. When I found out about this opportunity and what the manager wanted out of me I was happy.
“That is why I made my choice, because of the confidence both the manager and the Club showed in me.
“I did not need any convincing to come here. I believe I will be able to show my best as a player here.”
