Di’Shon Bernard keen to use his Hull City loan to push for Manchester United glory
According to BBC Humberside (h / t The Yorkshire Post), Manchester United star Di’Shon Bernard is keen to make full use of his loan to Hull City for a career at Old Trafford.
The 20-year-old was with Chelsea Academy before moving to United in 2017. A versatile player, he can do a job at both center-back and right-back.
He was first impressed with the Under-18s before settling in the Under-23s. He was sent on loan to Salford City for the 2020/21 season where he again impressed. Now in Hull City, he is keen to continue his development.
He has already made eight appearances for the Tigers this season. The youngster has performed well so far and there is little reason to see him sidelined for a place on the bench.
Bernard is convinced that a loan deal can help a young player immensely. Going from academy to first team is a dream that rarely comes true for the majority of players. Proving their courage elsewhere on loan has its advantages.
“A loan is definitely what a young player needs, I know everyone wants to jump straight into their club’s first team, but people have to realize that it’s not always like that.”
“You wish it was, but sometimes you have to lend a hand and learn your trade, which I have done and continue to do.”
He certainly seems to have learned from his plight in the lower leagues. Bernard also admits that going on loan is not excluded. It’s not something you’d expect a star-eyed young player to admit.
Hope his hard work and patience will be rewarded. It is not easy to present the levels expected of a star at United. However, every minute he works in the field, Bernard is at least one step closer to that goal.
“I’m not against being on loan again, so we’ll see. “

Ernest Hemingway in his book “Old Man and the Sea” quotes the character of Santiago saying that he would rather be exact rather than lucky. That way he will be ready when the chance comes.
Bernard seems to preach in the same direction. He won’t be caught off guard when his opportunity on the big stage arrives.
