Olivier Bernard Biography

Olivier has been a supporter of the Show Racism the Red Card campaign since he was a player at Newcastle United, attending educational events with us. Since retiring from football he has become even more involved in the campaign as one of our coaches visiting schools and delivering fun football sessions and educational workshops with young people throughout the North East.

Olivier began his career with Lyon, joining Newcastle United FC in 2000. While at NUFC he made over 100 league appearances during 2000-05, scoring 6 goals. In 2005 he joined Southampton, before joining Rangers for the following season. Olivier returned to Newcastle in 2006, unfortunately injuries kept him out of the team and a protracted injury to his hip led to his early retirement from football.

Olivier was presented with his Hall of Fame award on the pitch at NUFC in October 2011.
