Portugal Forward Joao Felix Review Why He Chose To Leave Athletico Madrid

Ahí la tuvo Portugal: el misil de Joao Félix con la zurda que acabó en paradón de Bono

The Portugal forward Joao Felix said he moved to Chelsea on loan because he was having difficulty adapting to Atletico Madrid‘s style of play, adding that Diego Simeone‘s philosophy was not always a match for every player.

Felix, 23, joined Atletico from Benfica for a recordbreaking 126 million euro fee in 2019 but had a hard time living up to his potential, with 25 goals in three and a half seasons before his switch to Chelsea in January to the end of the season.

Portugal forward was given a red card on his Premier League debut last month against Fulham, resulting in a threematch ban, but is ready to make a comeback this Saturday versus West Ham United.

Felix kicked off the transfer window by announcing he wanted a change of scenery, so he could show off his dribbling and passing ability. After Chelsea paid a reported 9 million pounds ($11 million) to sign him on loan, the footballer knew it was the right time to make the move.

Despite Simeone‘s tendency to prioritise defending over attacking, Felix refused to throw shade at the Argentine coach. Instead, he highlighted the fact that each person has their own way of understanding and seeing football.

Describin Simeone‘s vision of footie, he added:It‘s basically to suffer on the pitch. It‘s allbout sacrificin yourself, havin an opportunity and takin it. That‘s his way o competin‘. It ain‘t bad, but it‘s different to other gaffers.”
