Bernd Leno is a football player playing for Fulham.

Leno spent time in his youth career with VfB Stuttgart and moved to Bayer Leverkusen in 2011 where he made his Bundesliga debut. He impressed immediately at Leverkusen, making history as the third goalkeeper in league history to keep a clean sheet in each of his first three Bundesliga games. He also became the youngest German goalkeeper to play in the UEFA Champions League as a 19-year-old.

Leno quickly became Leverkusen’s first-choice goalkeeper in the 2011-12 season and spent seven successful years with the club, playing regularly to reach 300 games, before being sold to Arsenal in 2018 for 22 million pounds on a five-year contract.

At Arsenal, Leno would usurp Petr Cech as their first-choice goalkeeper and was runner-up in the club’s Player of the Season in 2019-20. Leno was Arsenal’s number one for three seasons but fell out of favour in the 2021-22 campaign following the arrival of Aaron Ramsdale along with a few errors.

In August 2022, Fulham completed the signing of Leno from Arsenal on a three-year deal.

He has also represented Germany, debuting in 2016 and being part of their squads at the triumphant 2017 Confederations Cup and Euro 2020, having missed the final cut for their 2018 World Cup squad. Leno has long been behind Manuel Neuer and not been able to compile many caps.
