English club Manchester United has confirmed that goalkeeper Martin Dubravka has returned to the club from international duty.
Dubravka is back at Carrington after picking up an injury while training on international break with his national team, Slovakia.
The on loan goalkeeper from Newcastle United was with his country as they prepare to face Azerbaijan and Belarus in the UEFA Nations League.
According to a statement on the club’s official website, Dubravka’s return was due just a ‘precautionary measure’.
“As a precautionary measure, Dubravka has withdrawn from the squad and will have his problem assessed at Carrington,” the club stated.
The 33-year-old, who is on a season-long loan transfer from Newcastle United, is yet to make his official debut for the Red Devils.
The Slovakian shot-stopper joined on transfer deadline day earlier this summer, putting pen to paper on a temporary contract that will keep him at the club for the rest of this 2022/23 season.
However, despite making several match day squads, the experienced goalkeeper is yet to play a competitive game for United.
Dubravka has featured in 30 matches for Slovakia, including his most recent in his country’s 6-0 away win over Malta in November 2021.
With David de Gea and Heaton as the only goalkeeper at the club, Erik Ten Hag and his coaching staff would be hoping that Dubravka’s injury is not a serious one.
