Jan Oblak broke a La Liga milestone during Atletico Madrid's 5-0 win against Osasuna, becoming the fastest goalkeeper to reach 100 clean sheets.

Speaking in an interview after reaching the milestone, Oblak said that despite the recent break from football during the coronavirus pandemic, he is still feeling sharp.


Oblak said that he is "feeling very good" and that "It doesn't feel like we had a three-month break."


Adding to this, he stat that he is "feeling good in goal and It 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."


Whilst he is glad to have reached the milestone, he admitted that he doesn't "pay much attention to stats"


The Slovenian has become one of the most reliable goalkeepers in the world since joining Atletico Madrid from Benfica in 2014.


Atletico Madrid are currently fourth in La Liga, but Real Sociedad have the chance to overtake them on Thursday when they face Deportivo Alaves.
