Jan Oblak keeps breaking records at our club. Our goalkeeper reached his 200th Atleti game during Saturday’s 4-0 win at Mendizorroza, in which he kept yet another clean sheet. During this time, he has kept 113 clean sheets (in 56.5% of all matches). Truly spectacular numbers for a spectacular shot-stopper.
The Slovenian was presented with a commemorative plaque for his 200 games by Atleti legend Abel Resino on Monday. The Spaniard is the goalkeeper that has played the most games for our club, having played 303 matches throughout 13 seasons (1982-95). Resino won two Copa del Rey titles (1992 and 1992) and one Zamora Trophy (1991) during his time at Atleti.
The Spaniard also holds the record for the most minutes without conceding a goal in the Spanish league (1,275 during the 1990-91 season). 28 years later, his record is yet to be beaten.
Since Oblak arrived at our club ahead of the 2014-15 season, he has won one Spanish Super Cup (2014), one Europa League (2017-18) and one UEFA Super Cup (2018), as well as several individual trophies that recognize him as one of the world’s best goalkeepers.
Oblak’s list of awards includes the last three Zamora Trophies. This season, the Slovenian is also the shot-stopper that has conceded the least amount of goals in LaLiga: 19 in 29 matches (0.66 per match).
Moreover, our goalkeeper made the UEFA Champions League Team of the Year in the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons and the Europa League Team of the Year in the 2017-18 season. He was also named Slovenian Footballer of the Year in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.
