Some West Ham fans took to Twitter last night, suggesting that they are extremely relieved that they didn’t sign Everton winger Bernard in the summer of 2018.
The 27-year-old Brazilian winger joined the Toffees on a free transfer two years ago.
At the same time, the Hammers had been linked with a move for Bernard. Football.London claimed that the east London outfit actually offered a package to the South American trickster.
But he eventually rejected a move to West Ham and joined Everton instead. At the time, the Hammers fans were gutted to have missed out on the 5ft 5in ace.
Bernard made a decent start to life at Goodison Park. But his form has dropped alarmingly this season.
And that must be a real worry for Carlo Ancelotti. The Italian has a lot of work to do at Everton. And moving on the underperforming winger might just be his first point of call this summer.
The Brazilian looks lightweight, and dithers too much when in possession of the football. His performance against Aston Villa last night really was dreadful. And many Everton fans were calling for him to be sold on Twitter.
Some West Ham fans reacted as well, sharing their relief that the 27-year-old didn’t move to the London Stadium in 2018…

Everton midfield is painful
Davies kept giving the ball away
Bernard does nothing
Others not much better

Bernard is awful tonight. Awobi not much better. Can see Villa winning this.

Get Iwobi and Bernard off if you want to win this game @Everton. Both garbage.
