The 28-year-old was instrumental in helping Atletico Madrid win their first La Liga trophy in seven years.
The former Benfica payer maintains yet another season with an impressive record, which he has been doing for the past few years at Wanda Metropolitano. Oblak played all 38 games for the Colchoneros, conceding only 25 goals in the campaign's entirety, which was the least number of goals by any goalkeeper in the league. He kept a total of 18 clean sheets and made 103 saves in the recently concluded campaign.
