A look back at the Brazilian's career.

Born in Sao Paulo, he began his career at Audax Sao Paulo before moving to Red Bull Brasil in 2012.

He then joined Red Bull Salzburg at the start of 2016, making 13 appearances in the latter half of the campaign as the Austrian side successfully defended their league title.

Bernardo switched to RB Leipzig in Germany that summer and went on to make 49 appearances for the Bundesliga side over the last two seasons, including three in the Champions League and five in the Europa League.

Bernardo’s father, Bernardo Fernandes da Silva, played over 300 league games in Brazil for Sao Paulo, Santos and Corinthians, and four for Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga. He also represented the Brazilian national side 19 times.

The Brazilian made his Albion debut in the 2-0 opening day defeat to Watford in August 2018.
