Rafael Leao now sends one-word message to £26m Everton player

AC Milan forward Rafael Leao has now sent a one-word message to Everton striker Beto.

The £26m Everton man made his debut for the club on Wednesday evening after his move from Serie A side Udinese.

Indeed, it took the Portuguese forward just 28 minutes to open his goalscoring account for the Toffees, and his countryman Rafael Leao sent the Everton man a one-word message after the game.

After overcoming Doncaster Rovers 2-1 in the Second Round of the League Cup, with Beto integral to the Everton victory, the £26m man took to Instagram to thank the travelling fans for their support.

Beto posted: “Proud to have kicked off my journey with the Everton shirt and scoring a goal on my debut! Thank you for your support! Let’s go Toffees.”

Commenting on his post was Portuguese international Rafael Leao, who replied: “Easyyyy.”

Beto appears to be the goalscorer Everton have lacked for a few seasons

Everton have been desperate to secure a goalscorer all summer and finally secured Beto’s signature after missing out on previous targets, such as Viktor Gyokeres, who moved from Coventry City to Sporting CP for £18m.

However, Beto has already made an impact at the club and the travelling fans could be heard singing his name in Doncaster on Wednesday evening.

Indeed, the 25-year-old is likely to make his Premier League debut for Sean Dyche’s side this afternoon as Everton travel to Bramall Lane.

Both Everton and Sheffield United have had dreadful starts to their Premier League seasons, with neither side yet to pick up a point.

In what is sure to be a tense atmosphere in the Steel City, both sides will be looking to get off the mark ahead of the international break.

With Arsenal next up in the league for the Toffees, this is an opportunity to get points on the board for Sean Dyche, and it Beto can repeat his performance from Wednesday evening, no doubt the travelling Evertonians will be singing his name once more.
