Koke, Oblak, Giménez and Savic will captain Atlético de Madrid throughout the 2021/22 season.
Koke (Madrid, Spain, 08/01/1992) joined our club as a six-year-old. A product of our Academy, he made his first team debut in 2009, and is a member of the first squad since 2010. Koke is a Spain international and has won eight trophies at our club: one Copa del Rey (2013), two LaLiga titles (2013/14 and 2020/21), one Spanish Super Cup (2014), two UEFA Super Cups (2012 and 2018) and two Europa League trophies (2012 and 2018).
Jan Oblak (Škofja Loka, Slovenia, 07/01/1993) joined Atleti in 2014. In the meantime, he has won five Zamora Trophies and is the goalkeeper with the most appearances in our club’s history. Since he arrived, Oblak has won one Spanish Super Cup (2014), one Europa League (2017/18), one UEFA Super Cup (2018) and one LaLiga title (2020/21). The 28-year-old has also made the UEFA Champions League Team of the Year in the 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons, the Europa League Best XI in 2017/18 and has been named Slovenian Player of the Year in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018. Last season, he was crowned the LaLiga MVP.

He’s one of our defensive leaders thanks to his quality and character. The centre-back has won two LaLiga titles (2013/14 and 2020/21), one Spanish Super Cup (2014), one UEFA Super Cup (2018) and one Europa League (2017/18).

We would like to congratulate our new captains and wish them the best of luck in the exciting season ahead.
