Wolves

Manas Dubey has joined TRAU on loan from Hyderabad FC for the 2021-22 season. The 19-year-old goalkeeper would be featuring for the I-League side who finished in third place last season.

Dubey has been playing for the Nizams since 2019. He was included in the squad in the 2020-21 Indian Super League campaign. Hyderabad have resumed training with the head coach Manolo Roca as well as with the new signings.

The Southern side are one of the favourites to win the ISL in the upcoming season after signing promising players such as Bartholomew Ogbeche, Javi Garcia, Javi Siverio, Juanan and so on. While TRAU are one of the dark horses in the I League.

TRAU have roped in a promising talent in the form of Manas Dubey from Hyderabad FC

Manas Dubey was a part of the Hyderabad reserves side that participated in the I League qualifiers last season. The 6’5″ shot-stopper had stints at U18 Youth League as well as in local leagues based in Mumbai and Pune.

He had extended his stay with the Nizams till the 2022-23 season and would be now playing with TRAU on loan. Last season, TRAU were one of the sides that struggled with their defence and Dubey would be getting a huge opportunity.

The Manipur-based club has been one of the emerging clubs and some of their players have now been in the ISL such as Bidyashagar Singh, who is currently at Bengaluru FC. Thus, a move to the Northeastern club would surely help Dubey in youth development.

Manas extended his contract last season alongside another promising youngster, Mark Zothampuia. While the latter has a contract extended till 2023-24 season, Dubey’s progress at the I-League side would be closely monitored by his parent club Hyderabad FC.

After failing to qualify for the knockouts of the Durand Cup, their main focus would be on the Hero Indian Super League. The Nizams first face southern rivals Chennaiyin FC on 23rd November in their opening match of the 2021-22 ISL season.
