Filip Mentel (born 2 February 1990) is a Slovak footballer who plays as a goalkeeper. He formerly played for Manchester City,[1] and Dundee United. His father, Miroslav Mentel was also a professional footballer.[2][3]

Career[edit]

Mentel signed for Dundee United in July 2010, joining fellow Slovakian goalkeeper Dušan Perniš at the SPL club.[4][5] In July 2011, Mentel moved to Clyde on loan, in the Scottish Third Division.[6] Mental made his Bully Wee debut in a 2-2 draw with Berwick Rangers at Broadwood. Unfortunately, Mentel's loan spell ended prematurely, after suffering a serious knee injury in November 2011 in a game that ended in a 1-0 loss against Alloa Athletic and he returned to Dundee United for treatment after making 12 appearances.[7] Mentel left Dundee Utd in November 2012, his contract ended by mutual consent.[8] During his two years with the club, Mentel failed to register a single competitive appearance.
