|Everton hero Kevin Campbell thrilled by 'wonderful' Bernard
| sbo168 Former Everton favourite Kevin Campbell knew exactly what the Blues were getting when they signed Brazilian playmaker Bernard in the summer - and he hasn't been disappointed.Campbell, who scored 51 goals for the Blues and shared a dressing room with talents like Wayne Rooney , Anders Limpar, Paul Gascoigne and David Ginola, regularly watched Bernard sprinkle stardust in the Champions League for Shakhtar Donetsk and was thrilled when his old club snapped him up.
“Bernard is a wonderful player, I watched him quite a bit in the Champions League for Shakhtar so knew about his ability,” Campbell told evertonfc.com .“He is that creative spark and can provide an important bridge between midfield and attack. The top teams have those players who help you get out of your defensive shape and up the field when you have the ball – and are capable of picking a telling pass.
“What a player he is. And I believe the best is yet to come from Bernard, I really do.” Campbell also has high hopes for a player who followed his own path from Arsenal to Everton, although Super Kev squeezed in spells at Nottingham Forest and Trabzonspor before he joined the Blues in 1999. sbo168 Theo Walcott joined Everton in January after 12 years with Arsenal and Campbell – who was a Gunners trainee and spent 10 years with the north London club – believes the England international is a perfect fit for Marco Silva’s high-energy model.
“The timing of Theo’s move was perfect for everyone and he knew he was joining a big club,” said Campbell. “He is fit and playing every week and someone with Theo’s ability will thrive on regular football. And it is key for him that he has a manager who sbo168 believes in his ability. “He is going to be a very important player for Everton and I am very positive about what the next few years might hold for him.”
