The unfortunate turn of events has forced the club to recall the Manchester United Academy graduate six months before the player’s actual return date.
Manchester United were a mostly active side last summer when it came to improving the academy. It was apparently her last chance with the new one Transfer provisions after Brexit should be introduced this month.
In order to make the most of the opportunity, United first had to unload the squatters in Carrington. And it came in the form of loaning out players who had to play football on a regular basis.
Several established Manchester United Academy graduates were temporarily shown the exit door. And Matej Kovar was one of them.
Over the summer, United dominated the youth market with the signing of Marc Jurado, Alvaro Fernandez Carreras, Alejandro Garnacho, Isak Hansen-Aaoren, Logan Pye, Joe Hugill and Radek Vitek.
On the flip side, Kovar moved to Swindon Town after signing a one-year loan deal with League One club. It was originally expected that a loan move to the Wiltshire-based club could help the Manchester United academy graduate achieve regular playing time and eventually develop his game.

But six months later, the loan seems to have been in vain. As the Manchester Evening News correspondent reported Richard Fay, the Red Devils called the 20-year-old back six months before the player’s actual return date from Swindon.
United are unhappy with how Kovar went on loan. Signed by the Czech side FC Slovácko In 2018 he conceded only one goal out of 20 games in the league.
Swindon Town is currently number 23 on the league table and is in a difficult position. Taking all the circumstances into account, Manchester United have decided not to keep the youngster at the relegation-threatened club.
It has also been suggested that the Red Devils look forward to sending Kovar on another loan for the remainder of the season.
