Manchester United has confirmed that Martin Dubravka has withdrawn from international duty with Slovakia. The 33-year-old has picked up an injury and will return to Manchester to be assessed.
Martin joined Manchester United on a season-long loan which contains a purchase clause based on appearances. The number of appearances to trigger the clause is reportedly high.
Dubravka has yet to make his debut with the Red Devils. Manager Erik Ten Hag has handed number one David de Gea starts in every match including the Europa League.
The extent of the injury is unknown as Manchester United have issued the following statement:
Manchester United’s on-loan goalkeeper Martin Dubravka will return from international duty earlier than expected, after picking up an injury in training with Slovakia.
The 33-year-old was due to be involved in his country’s two home Nations League games, against Azerbaijan this evening (Thursday) and Belarus on Sunday.
As a precautionary measure, Dubravka has withdrawn from the squad and will have his problem assessed at Carrington.
Dubravka has been capped 30 times for Slovakia. Behind him is Marek Rodak, who has 17 caps and started as Fulham’s number one this season until Bernd Leno arrived on loan from Arsenal.
