Marco Silva Urges Bernard and Richarlison To Learn English
Everton boss Marco Silva has urged his new signings Richarlison and Bernard to learn English, after taking the pair to Goodison Park this summer. Bernard joins from Shakhtar Donetsk, but Richarlison has been in England for a year with Watford.
Portuguese coach Silva admits that he must improve in this aspect too, as he seeks to settle his two Brazilian forwards into life in Liverpool, “Richarlison has settled in well, he is a fantastic professional and a good boy.
“But he has to learn as much English as he can and we are pushing him on that because it is important for him and for us. He is doing it but he needs to improve his English. That applies to me as well.
“I am learning it all the time. I have already told Bernard and Mina yhey have to learn English as well.” Silva says that Richarlison has settled quickly at Everton, following the forward’s two goal debut against Wolves last weekend.
“Everybody likes him and he is enjoying the environment. He performed very well last week but we have to be calm with him. He is a young boy with a big talent but we cannot put all the headlights on Richarlison.”
