Share: FB TW

Jan Oblak is a world-famous name in football. As a young man from Škofja Loka, he has become a star of the Spanish La Liga and now enjoys the role of the most expensive goalkeeper in the world. 

The door to football stardom opened for him by signing the first contract for the Portuguese club Benfica in 2010. The Slovenian national football team player Jan Oblak currently wears the jersey of Atlético Madrid, where he will remain until 2023. He has made 250 appearances for his club and won three trophies, including the UEFA Super Cup 2018 when he defeated city rival Real Madrid. The outstanding goalkeeper is also at the top of the list of the best goalkeepers in the last twenty years. No wonder, since he has the best save percentage among all goalkeepers of the 21st century. His ratio is 0.54, which translates to 137 saves in 252 matches.

When he was just 14 and still living in Slovenia, Jan Oblak usually rode his bicycle for 30 km to get to practice.
