Former Manchester United youngster Martin Svidersky is yet to make his first-team debut for La Liga side Almeria.

The 20-year-old opted to join the Spanish side on a free transfer having rejected a contract extension with the Red Devils, as per the club’s website.

The eight-time Slovakia Under-21 international, who never made his debut for the United first team, joined fellow former Reds academy duo Arnau Puigmal and Largie Ramazani who had also joined Almeria in recent years.

But unlike Puigmal and Ramazani, Svidersky finds himself on the fringes of the first team and is yet to make his senior bow for his new club.

How Martin Svidersky is faring at Almeria

The Slovakian midfielder, who joined United’s Academy from Tatran Presov in April 2018, has appeared on the Almeria bench nine times this season, but he hasn’t been able to make that final push onto the pitch just yet.

Almeria’s number 26 is currently having to settle for a spot in the Spanish side’s B-team where he will be hoping to catch the attention of Almeria manager Rubi.

Svidersky made 69 appearances for United’s youth sides where he scored one goal.

Puigmal has played 312 minutes of football for Almeria’s first team this season, while Ramazani, who has scored two goals, has been handed 1,114 minutes of action.

Several former Manchester United youngsters have taken the plunge and opted to leave Old Trafford to pursue first team football at senior level.

James Garner, Dylan Levitt, Charlie McCann and Angel Gomes are among the former academy prospects to make the brave decision to call time on their United chapters.

Svidersky hasn’t had the same success that the aforementioned quartet have had, but he was never going to break into the United first team and he’ll be hoping to force his way into the Almeria starting line-up over time.
