A 12-year career in the game his seen the 30-year-old attacking midfielder ply his trade in his native Brazil, Serbia and Portugal before making the move to England and the Tigers when becoming Marco Silva’s first signing in January.
He has since made nine appearances in a black and amber shirt, and that has been enough to convince him of the strength of English football’s top-flight.
“Other players told me this country would be a more aggressive league but I have played in the Champions League before and have found the level of competitiveness to be very similar,” he admitted.
“I’m enjoying the Premier League. I have played all over the world and I feel this has set me up well for my career in England.
“This is without doubt the best league in the world and I’ve enjoyed every game I’ve been involved in so far. Hopefully that will continue until the end of the season.”
Despite enduring a frustrating start to his time at the KCOM Stadium, missing five games due to a niggling calf injury, the now fit-again Evandro is enjoying life in England off-the-pitch as well as on it.
“I am enjoying the experience of living in England. This is my first time in this country so everything is new to me but I’ve found it to be a really good experience so far.
“It’s a new culture to get used to but I’m liking what I’ve experienced already and I look forward to seeing more of the country.
“Everybody at the club and around the city has been really welcoming, so I would say my whole experience has been very good so far.
“My wife and two children have come across to live with me in England now and we’re getting to go through this experience together.
“My wife is finding the culture to be very easy to get used to but my children are struggling with the language a little bit.
“Both of my daughters are going to English schools so I hope they pick the language up naturally.
“I am taking a couple of lessons a week to help learn English a lot quicker and hopefully I’ll be able to communicate with my team-mates a lot easier over the next few months.
“Each day that goes by I feel more and more comfortable with the language and I hope I’ll be able to speak better English soon.”
Back to on the pitch matters, the Tigers face the first of six huge games in the fight for Premier League survival when travelling to the Bet365 Stadium to face Stoke City at the weekend, and the importance of the fixture is not lost on Evandro.
“Every game is so important to us at this stage of the season and we will go into each of remaining six games looking for the win,” he added.
“It will be a tough game away at Stoke at the weekend, but I’ve got full confidence in the team to go out and win the game.
“Nothing will be easy in this division but we have to ensure we continue to work really hard to achieve our goal of staying in this division.”
