Marco Silva Wants More Goals From Bernard
Everton boss Marco Silva was delighted with Bernard’s winning goal against Watford at the weekend and says he wants to see the Brazilian shoot more.
Bernard is a tricky winger known for his ability to set goals up, but Silva says he wants to see Bernard take on the shot more often- and believes Saturday was a good start in that respect.
“It is something I am demanding every single day from him,” Silva told evertontv. “We know Bernard is a player with high technical quality, giving us very good things and providing assists.
“But I want him to be more hungry to score. In some moments – it is maybe not the right word – I want him to be more selfish. He did that on Saturday – it was a really important moment for us and for Bernard.
“It is something he is working really hard on during the week and when the players work and see things happen in the game [as a result of that work] it is a very good feeling.
“Bernard is a player who, if he can see a teammate in a better position, will always try to assist,” said Silva.
“In some moments, one v one, or going into the box, you have to decide [which option to take] as fast as you can.
“He was assertive and took the decision to shoot on Saturday – and it was really important. He has to be there to score in big moments and he was, which was fantastic.”
