Diego Godín doesn’t stop making history as an Atlético player and this Wednesday he lifted the UEFA Super Cup in Tallinn, his first title as the team’s first captain. Godín doesn’t stop collecting trophies as an Atlético and with the victory over Real Madrid, he’s already won eight as a ‘rojiblanco’. These stats are presented and brought to you by bwin.
Our center-back surpassed Isacio Calleja, an Atleti legend from the ‘60s and 70s’, who had won seven titles while playing for our club: two league titles (1965/66 and 1969/70), four General's Cup (now Copa del Rey) (1960, 1961, 1965 and 1972) and one Cup Winner's Cup (1962). Only Adelardo Rodríguez, the player who played the most matches for our club in our history, is ahead of Godín with 10 titles.
Our captain joined our club back in the 2010 summer transfer window. His first title was the European Super Cup in Monaco. With Simeone’s arrival at our club, our captain progressed on and off the pitch, which has led him to be the first captain starting this season. Thanks to a Godin header we won LaLiga at the Camp Nou in the 2013/14 season. In total, he’s won: one LaLiga (2013/14), two UEFA Europa League (2012 and 2018), one Copa del Rey (2012/13), three UEFA Super Cup (2010, 2012 and 2018) and one Spanish Super Cup (2014) while playing for our club,
In addition to Diego Godín, other players such as Filipe Luis, Koke and Juanfran have also enlarged their history as ‘rojiblancos’ tonight. The three Atléticos, who have defended our shirt in more than 300 occasions, count on their record since Wednesday with seven titles like ‘rojiblancos’, or what is the same, the same as the Ateti legend Calleja, player who has just overcome Diego Godín.
Brilliant work, Diego!
