Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak became the fastest goalkeeper to reach a century of La Liga clean sheets after the team’s 5-0 demolition of Osasuna.
Osasuna were put to the sword on Wednesday as Atletico star Oblak made history by keeping his 100th clean sheet from just 182 league appearances.
Slovenia international Oblak shattered the record set by Miguel Reina, who managed the same feat after 222 matches.
Speaking after reaching his milestone, Oblak declared he’s feeling sharp despite the recent break from football and is eager to improve his number of clean sheets.
“I’m feeling very good. It doesn’t feel like we had a three-month break,” he said.
“I’m feeling good in goal and I think the team is too. Maybe you could tell after the first game, but now we’re improving and I hope we attack the upcoming matches like we did today.
“To be honest, I don’t pay much attention to stats. I hear what people say. It’s a nice milestone to reach but I hope it doesn’t stay there!”
