Bernard Talks Up Digne Partnership at Everton
Everton winger Bernard says he is enthused by the partnership he is forming with Toffees’ left-back Lucas Digne.
Bernard has forced his way into the team in recent weeks on the left side of an attack featuring Theo Walcott and Richarlison.
But the Brazilian says the relationship he has formed with left-back Lucas Digne is one of the most prominent features of his run in the side.
“We are developing a strong understanding, without a doubt,” Bernard told Everton’s official website. “Lucas is a really intelligent player.
“He loves playing with the ball at his feet and we have been looking to combine since we started playing together.
“We are on the same wavelength, so he knows where to play the ball and where to pass. It is important to have players like him and our understanding will only get better.
“I am adapting to the Premier League and dedicating myself to improving, so I can continue to progress and impose myself on matches.”
