Bernard feels good when he plays alongside Richarlison
Everton attacker Bernard is relishing linking up with fellow Brazilian Richarlison again soon and says it feels good to play alongside his compatriot.
Richarlison is once again on international duty with Brazil, but Bernard is not concentrating on his country as he is sure that if his performances for Everton are good, then he will get a call-up.
“Richarlison has been doing brilliantly and is a great player to have with us,” Bernard told evertontv.
“He deserves everything he has been getting. It feels good to play together.
“For his goal [against Leicester], it felt good for me to help the team and with it being a Brazilian player scoring, it was even more special.
“But the whole team played well. When they lost a player, we were able to impose ourselves, make the most of that and get the result.
“Now we want to keep going and achieve more.”
Richarlison is a really great player and really deserves the call up for the Brazil team,” he added. “He has been doing well and has the characteristics to play well in the Premier League.
“For me, it is something [an international call-up] that would be nice but I want to focus on Everton first.
“I did not play for six months [before I moved to Everton]. I have been playing well but have only just got here.
“Things happen naturally. I want to concentrate here and keep doing well and perhaps something will come up.
“But I need to show my football here and see how it goes from there.”
