“It’s music to my ears” – Dominic Calvert-Lewin opens with Rafa Benitez Everton’s message – .

Dominic Calvert-Lewin shared his reaction after hearing Rafa Benitez’s post about Everton’s breeding habits this season.
The forward was in fantastic form for his team throughout last season, scoring 21 goals in all competitions which was his best comeback in senior football.

Many of those goals came from one touch inside the box as Carlo Ancelotti turned the 24-year-old into a poacher in the opposing box.

And he continued that form into the current season, scoring the third goal as Everton beat Southampton 3-1 at Goodison Park on Saturday – adding to strikes from Richarlison and Abdoulaye Doucoure.

New boss Benitez also spoke about the forward last month – saying he wanted his side to provide more crosses and quality service to his forward throughout 2021/22.

And the England international admitted he was delighted to hear that, and believes it will challenge him to beat his numbers with a brilliant tenure last time around.

Calvert-Lewin said, “This is what I want to hear.

“I worked hard to get to the position I am in today, so hearing the new manager come over to try and create more chances for me to score more goals is music to my ears.

“I think you saw today with some of the crosses that I got that I flipped through or just didn’t make it. I think these are good signs for things to come.

“As a center forward, every season you have to prove that you can do it over and over again. Last season I proved that I can score goals and this season I have to start over.

“It’s a challenge that I look forward to and, you know, you’ll always have people who doubt you, but it’s something that I like and I’m taking it to the field with me to prove to people. why I am there I am and where I am going. “

Benitez received a warm welcome from Everton fans before and after the final whistle despite some controversy surrounding his appointment as the club’s new boss in June.

And Calvert-Lewin has claimed that the change in manager does not affect his ambitions or those of the team in the next term.

“I think the goals don’t change, whoever the manager is,” he added.

“As a club it stays the same – we want to win and we want to be among the best teams in the league.

“It’s like it’s a long time ago now [Carlo leaving] so this is not something i have really thought about for a long time and i am looking forward to playing under the guidance of Rafa’s new manager and learning as much as possible to keep improving and keep scoring more of goals.

“I am absolutely delighted to come back with a goal. That’s what I was thinking about last night, that’s how I wanted to start the season.

“I had three weeks off but that’s what you have to deal with as a player, I’m not complaining. I love to play football and I was delighted to come back in front of the fans which was a special moment for me. “
