Jan Oblak keep breaking records in the Atlético de Madrid. This year his big goal is to match Victor Valdes Y Ramallets as the goalkeepers who have won the most times Zamora Trophy throughout his sports career. The Slovenian has four and if he wins it this season he would match them.
Long ago he became the goalkeeper in the history of the Atlético de Madrid what else Zamoras has won. And now he continues to advance in the mattress history with the number of games that he plays each season. In a few weeks he will reach 300 official meetings defending the shield of the bear and the strawberry tree.
Before that, he has equaled a true club legend as he is Jorge Griffa. Both have played 288 matches with the mattress house. The Argentine defender played from 1959 to 1969 in the Atlético de Madrid achieving a League, a European Cup Winners’ Cup and three Generalissimo Cups.
Now ahead he has three footballers who have been under the command of Simeone, two of them have been his companions as they are Perea, Filipe Luis Y Godin. The Colombian was only one season under the command of Cholo, and it’s the third on this list. He was also a central defender like Griffa. He was from 2004 to 2012, a period in which he won two Europa League and a European Super Cup.
In second place is Filipe Luis. The Brazilian has been one of the praetorians of the Cholo in recent years. He arrived in 2010 and left in 2019 although in between he had a season, 2014-15, in the Chelsea. He played 333 games and won a League, a Copa del Rey, two Europa League and three European Super Cups.
At the top is Godin. He has played 101 more games with him Atlético de Madrid than the Slovenian at the moment. 289 meetings in total. So there is still left to Oblak to overtake you. Like Filipe Luis He arrived in 2010 and left in 2019, in his case his passage did not have any interruption. During this period he managed to win a League, a King’s Cup, a Spanish Super Cup, two Europa League and three European Super Cups.
curiously Oblak will be the first European to be among the foreign players with the most matches in the Atlético de Madrid. A distinction that in the mattress box is designed especially for the rear. Four defenders and a goalkeeper. A curious detail.
