Juanfran is one of the 50

Tuesday, 8 March, 2016

171 league games as a mattress (Atletico de Madrid player). That is the figure that reaches Juanfran being one of the starting line-up against Valencia. A number that places him among the 50 players in the history of Atletico Madrid having played more league games. The Crevillente equalized against Real Sociedad the number of games that other mythical defender, Alberto Callejo, but with today's game against Valencia, Juanfran overtakes him in the historical classification and places alone at No. 50 colchoneros players with the most league games. A list headed by Adelardo and having at Torres (13th) (counting their matches in Segunda), Gabi (26th), Godin (44th), Koke (48th) and the same Juanfran as representatives of the current squad among the top 50. With them the feeling of belonging is clear. Torres, Gabi, Godin, Koke and Juanfran himself are the representatives of the current team in the top 50 . So until the end of this season Juanfran has a shot Futre (173 games), his partner Koke (174) Aguero and German (175) and Julio Prieto (178). He arrived as a winter patch in an impromptu transfer policy, but Juanfran has ended up becoming part of the Atletic history.
