They say that one can change jobs or cities, change the circle of friends and even partner.

But if something remains unchanged, it is the passion for some colors.

The love for a soccer team is something innate, linked to the interior of the person, impossible to replace by any other.

Football has a huge presence in Spain.

No other sport has the impact and influence of 11 footballers on a field of play, capable of stopping entire cities on certain days.

Since childhood, forming a large part of those first memories, it occupies a place in the lives of the little ones.

One of the first choices in life is linked to this game.

Those feelings of unconscious support for a shirt, so many illusions that will go behind colors that will always be their own.

Normally, the city team is chosen, because of that feeling of community that football ends up generating.

When we animate some colors we are part of something.

We are moved by a common cause and we all row towards the same goal.

Dreaming of being the engine of that passion is in everyone's heart.

It is the possibility of making many citizens happy.

Getting there is something reserved for the most tenacious, those who put their lives at the service of sport.

One of those children who dreamed of being a footballer was Jorge Resurrección Merodio, known sportingly as 'Koke'.

Dressed in red and white since he was a child, trained in the lower categories of the club, he has gone through all levels of Atlético de Madrid.

Since he made his debut at the age of 16 in the subsidiary until his debut with the first team at the Camp Nou against FC Barcelona.

Koke, a myth for the return of 'cholismo'

His example is that of a complete athlete.

Always faithful to his colors and feelings, he has shown year after year a huge heart to continue in the club he loves.

With the level that he has shown, attracting the interest of other clubs, he has never made the decision to leave the team that he loved since childhood.

After coming a long way, he has become a true club legend.

He is the captain, he has lifted both national and European titles, being a key player in the modern development of the team.

For a few days, he has become the player with the most games played in the entire history of Atlético de Madrid.

His merit goes beyond what he has achieved in the field.

He is a figure admired by young people, a mirror for a generation that needs role models with good values.

Perhaps he is not one of the most mediatic players in La Liga, something that enhances his merit.

He is an example of leadership before his teammates, of respect before the press and closeness to the fans.

It is no coincidence that he has become a club legend, an image bastion in recent years.

He has embodied total humility, being a permanent support for his teammates in a team used to reinventing itself year after year.

He is one of those athletes that every coach would like to have on his team, with 100% dedication every time he steps onto the field.

His numbers are already in the history of Spanish football.

The figure of him will remain linked to the memory of several generations of fans, who will take time to forget an extreme delivery on the field.

With his presence guaranteed at Atlético de Madrid until 2024, I am sure that he will continue to break records.

Above all, setting a valuable example for all followers.
