Koke Resurreción will continue with Atlético Madrid until 2024. The Rojiblanco youth graduate, who joined the club when he was just eight years old, is a basic piece of Simeone’s set-up and has clocked 323 games in official competition for the first team despite still being only 25. During those games he has scored 28 goals and created another 76 – the most recent, to set up Fernando Torres in the final game at the Vicente Calderón.
Koke thrilled to be staying with lifelong club Atleti
The Atlético No.6 told the club’s web page: “Atleti is the club of my life and it’s an honour to be part of its future”. Director of Sport José Luis Caminero added: “It’s fantastic news for all the Atléticos. Koke personifies what it is to be an Atlético. He is a very supportive player with the group, who works tirelessly, has the highest quality and an enormous desire for self-improvement. He is one of this team’s leaders and has grown up since very young with the values of our Academy, so knowing that he will continue with us for many more years is the best of news".
