Jan Oblak extended his legend as a Red & White player. In Sunday's match against Rayo Vallecano at the Estadio Vallecas, the Slovenian international surpassed Diego Godín with 390 games played as an Atleti player, becoming the foreigner with the most appearances for the club and the tenth Atleti player with the most.
The Škofja Loka native joined the club on 16 July 2014 at the age of 21. His debut came on 16 September of the same season in a Champions League match against Olympiacos in Greece. The rest is history.
The duel against Rayo was etched in a special way in the memory of our captain, his family and colleagues and, of course, all the Atleti fans. Today, at the age of 30, Jan Oblak has become the foreign player who has worn the Red & White shirt the most times in official matches: a total of 390 times.
He has won four titles at our club: one league (2020/21), one Europa League (2018), one European Super Cup (2018) and one Spanish Super Cup (2014). In addition to these titles, he also won numerous individual mentions that earned him the distinction of being one of the best goalkeepers in the world: he was part of the 2015/16 and 2016/17 UEFA Champions League teams; the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League; five Zamora trophies (2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2020/21) and was named MVP of the season in La Liga in the 2020/21 campaign.
Added to all these awards and achievements are these two new milestones: being the foreigner with the most appearances and the tenth player with the most appearances in the club's history. Jan, who is also the goalkeeper who has defended our goal the most times, is now ahead of only nine other red and white legends: Koke (578), Adelardo Rodríguez (553), Tomás Reñones (483), Enrique Collar (470), Carlos Aguilera (456), Isacio Calleja (425), Juan Carlos Arteche (421), Gabi (417) and Fernando Torres (404).
That's 390 games for Jan! We hope many more to come. Congratulations captain!
