Kovar signs new contract with United
Manchester United's Under-23s keeper Matej Kovar has signed a new contract with the club.
The 19-year-old has been rewarded for his consistent performances in both Premier League 2 and the Leasing.com Trophy with fresh terms, and finalised the deal before linking up with the Czech Republic Under-21 squad.
Kovar joined the club during the winter transfer window in 2018 from FC Slovacko.
He will look to maintain his development in Neil Wood's side and continue to hone his talents behind the scenes.
Fellow goalkeeper, Alex Fojticek, also signed a new contract in July ahead of his loan move to Stalybridge Celtic.
Fojticek has furthered his experience whilst on loan at the Northern Premier League club and will return to United in January.
“Both Matej and Alex deserve these contracts; they’ve come from the Czech Republic and Slovakia and settled really well in Manchester,” explained Head of Academy Nick Cox.
“Signing their contracts will enable both goalkeepers to continue their development under our excellent coaches.
