The Atlético de Madrid coach responded to Chelsea’s interest in the Slovenian goalkeeper and is confident that he will continue in the Atletico goal.
Diego Simeone not surprised by the rumored interest in Jan Oblak Due to his good performances in recent seasons, but he expects the goalkeeper to continue in Atlético de Madrid.
Oblak has been named the best goalkeeper in LaLiga during the previous four seasons and has only received 26 goals in 36 games in 2019/20, helping Atleti to be in the top four and qualified for the Champions League. So his name began to ring in Chelsea to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga.
“It doesn’t surprise me, every year our best players are wanted by the best in the world. It is normal to always look for the best, and we have many. Some have left and others have stayed,” Simeone told the media in the previous of the match against Getafe.
“It is logical and normal that someone loves Oblak. He is our captain and an important player. I hope we can count on his work, which is enormous for Atleti,” he added.
When asked again about Oblak’s future at Atlético, Cholo replied: “I repeat the same thing: it is normal that they want an archer of his characteristics and value. It does not surprise me. He is decisive and important in the dressing room year after year. He has evolved in every way, as a goalkeeper and within the group. “
