Joao Felix, who is set to start for Atletico Madrid against Chelsea, says he and Diego Simeone have a “very healthy” partnership.
Joao Felix, an Atletico Madrid player, has denied having any differences with head coach Diego Simeone. The 21-year-old, who has promised to make the most of his talent throughout his career, now wants to show that he and his teammates have a good working relationship.
According to Eurosport, he told reporters on Tuesday, “I’m content here, and so is my dad. There are positive and bad phases in everyone’s life. I had to protect Benfica as well as the national team. I’ll take care of what needs to be taken care of here. Talent does not show itself unless there is a deep urge to do so. Many young players were unable to achieve their full potential.”
