Juanfran came to Atlético de Madrid from Osasuna to reinforce the right wing, after Simão left the club. However, circumstances led the Spaniard to play in an unfamiliar position: right back. Juanfran's incredible work ethic led him to become one of the best right backs in Spain. His performances for Atleti brought him to defend Spain's national team in 22 matches. With 'La Roja', he won the Euro 2012.
