first_imgJesús Vallejo continues to evolve in search of earning a position on the Real Madrid squad. After a first half of the season without too many opportunities with Wolverhampton, the central returned to Spain to enroll in the Granada squad.

According to Opta data, Jesús Vallejo is the footballer of the entire First Division who has played the most minutes this season without committing a single foul. Although it is true that it has begun its journey several months after the rest of the footballers, it accumulates more than two complete matches without having committed any infraction.
