Everton striker Beto has spoken out about the Everton fanbase in an interview during the international break.

The 25-year-old joined the Toffees during the summer in a £25 million from Italian side Udinese and has already been an instant hit with the supporters.

Portuguese forward Beto scored on his first appearance for the club against Doncaster Rovers in the Carabao Cup, before putting in a solid display against Sheffield United.

Despite his good start, he’s admitted that it’s important he doesn’t get carried away as he still has more to bring to the club.

Beto on the Everton supporters

“The Everton fans are really amazing. They support us a lot, you can see that. They want to win, badly.

“I like this, I like this pressure that they provide because this is why we are here – to win, to do something good for Everton.

“It feels good, of course [to have love from the fans so soon], but, for me, I don’t want to be too comfortable and by that I mean I want to repay the love they are showing me with good performances, goals and assists.

“I want to improve. I want them to see that I’m fighting for Everton, this is so important for me – and I want them to celebrate my goals, lots of them. I’m a striker and I need to score.

“I know I didn’t arrive at my prime yet so I hope Everton can help me to arrive there.”
