Jan Oblak in Atletico Madrid Shirt

As one of excellent goalkeepers, it’s abnormal that there isn’t more noise around him. Although he is adept at catching football, there is no trending topic focused on him.

When he was 16, he reached the division and signed professional contract with Benfica prior to his 17th birthday. He grew into one of the best goalkeepers in the world at the age of 25. The reason why few people focused on him and talked about him lies in he seldom posts twitter or emerged in interviews. His efforts also contributed to his success to a certain extent.

He didn’t play for the World Cup, nor for the Champions League for a long time. At the same time, some will refer him when they talk about the topic about the best goalkeeper.
