Our captain will continue to defend the colors of Atlético de Madrid

Jorge Resurrección, known as Koke, is the player with the most appearances in the club's history with a total of 626 matches.

 Jorge Resurrección, Koke, will continue to defend the colors of Atlético de Madrid next season. Our captain, whose contract was ending on June 30, has reached an agreement with the club that includes an annual renewal at the end of each season.

On January 8, 1992, is a date marked on the rojiblanco calendar. That day, a boy from Vallecas was born. He arrived at Atlético de Madrid at the age of six and, since then, he has been progressing stages until becoming a Legend of our club. Today, at 32 years old, Jorge Resurrección Merodio is the footballer who has defended the Atleti jersey the most times in official matches. A total of 626 times.

The distant memory of September 19, 2009, when Jorge Resurrección put on the Atleti first-team jersey for the first time, has now faded. With the number '26' on his back, that day the player who has defended and will defend our crest for many years, began to be known. The match against Sevilla will be especially memorable for our captain, as he scored his first goal against the Andalusian team.

His story is not only limited to a number that very few footballers achieve, especially at the same club; he is also one of the most decorated players. He has lifted eight titles in the fifteen years that, until now, he has defended Atleti colors: two La Liga titles, one Copa del Rey, two Europa League titles, two UEFA Super Cups, and one Spanish Super Cup. Eight titles that make him the second player with the most titles in the club's history, surpassed only by Adelardo who has ten trophies as a rojiblanco.

Our captain perfectly embodies everything a child of Atleti wants to be when they grow up. Koke is struggle, effort, sacrifice, solidarity... Koke is courage and heart.
