Joao Felix sends strong message to Atletico fans after Barcelona win


Joao Felix sent a strong message to Atletico fans after scoring Barcelona win 3-0 over parent club.

Atletico fans burned a replica of his jersey and spat on Félix’s plaque outside the pitch before the match, making their feelings about the striker clear.

Yet Felix insists he is not the ‘bad guy’ and claims fans don’t really know what happened during his time at Atletico.

“As I said before, the fans in the stands don’t know what happened here while I’m here,” he said.

“What they say from the outside is that I don’t get along well with my former teammates, and that’s not true, as you could see, I was talking with Samuel earlier. [Lino] and Lemar, and everyone who passed by hugged me, came and talked to me and asked me how I was, my family and everything else, so you could see that I have nothing against them and that they have nothing against me.

“The fans don’t know what happened inside here, I completely understand their reactions, but I shouldn’t be seen as the bad guy in this situation.”

Felix didn’t help his cause by saying it was his dream to play for Barcelona while he was still an Atletico player. The striker then moved on loan to Xavi’s side, but is expected to return to Atletico this summer.
