An imposing centre-back who was formerly with Chelsea.
The defender spent some time at the Aon Training Complex on trial and impressed sufficiently to earn a move to Manchester. Bernard enjoyed a decent run in the Under-18s side over the course of the 2017/18 season, making nine appearances in all competitions and was a regular starter towards the back-end of the league campaign. The 17-year old centre-back was included in Kieran McKenna's squad for the Dallas Cup tournament in the USA. Bernard scored in an 8-0 thrashing of Higashi Fukuoka, before the Reds were knocked out in the semi-finals by Arsenal. He also started the national final against his former club Chelsea and became a regular at the heart of the back four in 2018/19. Not only that but the central defender developed a knack of finding the net as he scored against the Blues again, in a fabulous 4-3 FA Youth Cup win, and also in the next round during the defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion. He finished with four goals in 21 appearances for Neil Ryan's team and also gained plenty of experience in the Under-23s, making five starts. An impressive start to the 2019/20 season saw Bernard given a full senior debut by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with the defender completing the full 90 minutes in United’s 2-1 defeat to FC Astana in the UEFA Europa League.
