Oblak explains why he was absent for Slovenia

The Atletico Madrid goalkeeper missed six UEFA Nations League fixtures because he decided to focus on the Spanish La Liga club.

“I dream of having three children. Those dreams motivate you when you wake up each morning and you have goals to achieve,” he explained.

“On a personal level, that’s the highest you can get.”

“It’s the most historic award, the most prestigious one. However, I also am a player who thinks collectively over individually, but it would be nice [to win it] for myself, because of everything I’ve gone through, especially after having to separate myself from my family at 3 years old,” he commented.

“Since I was 3 until 18 years of age when I signed my first professional contract, those were tough moments. Only because of that it would be incredible for my parents, my siblings and for myself.”
