Everton attacker Bernard needs to turn promise into end product

Everton attacker Bernard has on the main enjoyed a successful first year at Goodison Park and looked the part in English football.

The Brazilian made the move to the Toffees last summer on a free transfer after leaving Shakhtar Donetsk and is on a hefty £120,000-a-week contract (Spotrac).

He is a diminutive left-winger that has tremendous pace and trickery, something that has seen him become a regular starter in Marco Silva’s team.

The dazzling wide man has excellent technical ability and fans will also love his infectious work-rate for the team.

 

One grey area though hanging over Bernard is his end product and ultimately that will have to improve eventually if he is to remain a mainstay in the side.

Bernard has made 33 appearances across all competitions for the Merseyside club, scoring two goals and supplying four assists in return.

It’s certainly not a goal return that is inspiring and as an attacker he needs to deliver more.

Everton should have seen enough to be encouraged that he can make the step up next year and he’s already got the all-round play that fits Silva’s high intensity style well.

If he can cement his spot on the left flank for the foreseeable future, it could allow teammate Richarlison to continue on the right and form a dynamic frontline.
