Even though it will be 10 years since Jan Oblak left his first club abroad in the summer, at Benfica they still haven’t forgotten the captain of the Slovenian national team. The excellent Škofjelo player, who Benfica brought back in 2010 for a million-dollar compensation from Olimpija, has been given a new honour in Lisbon these days – he has been placed on the so-called ” Wall of Champions“.
Benfica is at 20. Anniversary the inauguration of the new da Luz stadium, the stadium was decorated with images of 20 footballers who have made their mark on the iconic Lisbon facility. Jan Oblak is also among the selected players.
Although Jan Oblak has been a member of Benfica for four years, he has only played 26 games for the club. But in the meantime, he has left a remarkable mark. He has kept the net intact in 22 matches and has only scored six goals as Benfica’s first goalkeeper.
The 30-year-old, who has been loaned out several times by Benfica (Beira-Mar, Olhanense, Leiria, Rio Ave), also won three trophies with the Portuguese giants, all in 2013/14. Benfica became national champions that year, winning the Portuguese Cup and the League Cup. At the end of that season, Jan Oblak left Lisbon to join Atletico Madrid for €16 million.
