Koke, the Atleti drummer

The midfielder accumulates 2,429 minutes this season. His last replacement in the League was against Valladolid on December 5.


Koke does not stop and his numbers certify him with 2429 minutes on the grass, only Oblak and Savic surpass him. He has not been a substitute in the league since December in a game against Valladolid at the beginning of the month. At 29 years old, he is in one of his best moments and physically he is not having problems in demanding campaigns with many matches in a row.

The Atlético de Madrid captain played his 483rd match with the rojiblanco team in mid-February, equaling Tomás Reñones. The rojiblanco myth was disarming when asked by Koke: "He is going to leave us all far behind. It is a great honor that a person from the house, who knows Atlético de Madrid from below, gets here. And what remains to him still, because it is going to leave us all far behind. For me it is a pride ". There is no doubt about everything he has left to beat at the club.

Koke has shared the core of the field with many great players such as Tiago, Gabi, Rodrigo and Thomas, among others. He has always known how to adapt to different systems, especially 4-4-2. Now, he is the mainstay of the team and a key figure in the face of this derby against Madrid where the draw serves them to get away from Madrid.

Simeone's advice in 2019

The Argentine coach spoke loud and clear about the midfielder giving him advice: "Fortunately he wants to do more, but he ends up wearing out and has a lot of responsibility. He is very good at what he does well and I'm sure he will continue to do so. because he is a great professional and a great player, "he added about Koke, whistled by a sector of the fans when he was substituted last Tuesday in the Champions League." Since then, we are seeing one of his best versions.
