Oblak is Atletico Madrids unsung star

Atletico Madrid Not treated the same way that Griezmann was

Jan Oblak is undoubtedly one of the best goalkeepers worldwide, but he hasn’t received the recognition he deserves.

Although the Slovenian faces it all in a positive way, he remembers that when he renewed his contract with Atletico Madrid this year he was promised by the club that the team would be strengthened after the departure of important units in summer.

The Slovenia international is believed to disillusioned at the fact he isn’t receiving the same special treatment that Antoine Griezmann used to and the fact that even Joao Felix has received more marketing and media backing.

The 19-year-old has seen the team’s official store flooded with shirts with his number in the back, alongside pictures of the Portuguese talent.

Nothing similar, however, has ever happened with Oblak, who is regarded by many as the best shot-stopper in the world.

While Griezmann encouraged the board to invest in Thomas Lemar, boasting the kind of influence that Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo also have, nobody from Atletico‘s board has ever asked for Oblak’s opinion for potential transfers.

He is Los Rojiblancos’ unsung star.
