Bernardo leaves for German Bundesliga

Transfer to VfL Bochum

Bernardo Fernandes da Silva Junior has left our Red Bulls to join VfL Bochum in the German Bundesliga.

93 appearances for the Red Bulls

The 28-year-old Brazilian is leaving after three years (in two spells) and 93 appearances for us. Bernardo is heading to Germany with five league titles and four cup wins behind him.


Bernardo told us a while ago that he really wanted to change clubs. We are pleased to have found a solution that suits all parties. We wish him all the best for his future in football!

Sporting director Christoph Freund

I had the feeling that it is time for a change and that I should try a new club. My time in Salzburg was really exciting, I learned so much and can take a lot into my future as a result.


We wish you all the best in Bochum, Bernardo!
