The Slovakia international was one who could have left this summer after the departure of Rafa Benitez.
However, Dubravka hunkered down and continued to cement his spot as the club's number one goalkeeper.
Now he has spoken about his happiness at St. James' Park.
"It is important to me that my position has not changed. I'm continuing (to play) and I'm happy about it," he told reporters while on international duty.
"It would be difficult for any coach coming after Benitez because he has a name. People loved him there.
"Bruce was given the opportunity. It is challenging and he strives to motivate us a lot in matches and in training."
