Hemsidan tar ”pulsen” på André Bernardini, en av årets nyckelspelare i IFK
Tell me a little bit about Andre Bernardini?
A dreamer. A hard worker. Someone who never gives up, and pushes through obstacles. But outside of football I am a pretty quiet person; enjoy watching movies, play chess, stay inside, talk to my family, spend time with my girlfriend.
The preseason has become completely different due to covid 19. Who do you think it will affect the season?
I think now we have a new challenge in front of us: arriving to our first game, whenever it may be, ready physically and mentally. We will do well if we don’t think about it too much and just push it hard day after day. I hope we will still be able to play all of the games, as I miss the competitiveness that games provide, and I am sure everyone in IFK do as well. So I think that it would be a very good reward for everyone if we got to play all of the 30 games, after so many months of preseason and uncertainty.
Last season you become the best goalkeeper in div 2 south. Did you receive any offers from any other club?
Not that I am aware of! It was a nice award to receive in my first season here, and was nice to help the team go to Div 1 for the first time, but all of that is already gone! Now I need to keep training hard, giving my best and proving myself every day that I deserve to be here.
How do you think this year's IFK:s squad looks, compared to last years?
Last year we had more experienced players within the squad, as in this year I see we have a lot of young players. We kept a lot of players from last year, which is important, and made very good additions. We have a lot of talent, as we did last year. We need now to keep listening to the coaching staff, working hard, and I am sure we will surprise many people this year; as a team and individually as well!
Do you think you dare to predict IFK:s place in ETTAN Norra this season?
One can never predict where we will end up, but I am holding my head high when I say we can be top 5 this year if we all work together and push hard.
Five Quick Questions?
The best goalkeeper in the World?
Currently Alisson. His ability to make hard shots look easy by being in the right position all the time, being calm and cool, playing with his feet, being commanding, coming big when it matters, and being constant is what makes him the best right now. One day I would like to be up there as well.
Liverpool, no doubt. Running all the time, the amazing fans, the aggressive style of football, the ‘never-give-up attitude’ is great to watch.
I really like Rap music. Mostly from 90’s and early 2000s. And I do enjoy brazilian music (samba, funk and rap).
Best holiday spot?
At the gym working hard, getting better, faster, stronger and getting ready before everyone else! Howe ever as a Brazilian, I do enjoy the beach.
Your next club?
Tough question! I don’t have a name in mind, but wherever it may be, it needs to be an environment where I can be developed as a player and person.
