Spanish League News: Joao Felix admits that he is very comfortable with Atletico Madrid’s current style of play. He had to adapt after being recruited from Benfica in 2019 and found it difficult at first because he was not used to it.
Joao Felix joined Atletico Madrid and became the most expensive player in the club’s history after joining from Benfica three years ago. Being billed as one of the most promising players in world football at the time did not necessarily mean that the Portuguese forward could adapt quickly to playing for Diego Simeone’s team, and he revealed the difficulties he faced.
“At first I wasn’t used to it, at Benfica I played a different kind of football, but I knew I had to adapt quickly. That’s what I tried to do in the first season. And now I am very comfortable with this style of play,” said the 22-year-old as quoted by Marca.
“If I was here playing for Atletico, I would have to play in this style. At first it was difficult, I wasn’t used to the pressure, over time and the people right around me, everything got used to it, now I feel very comfortable.”
The young Portuguese star also revealed Atleti’s ambitions this season.
“I feel we are going to have a great season, our ambition is the same every year, to win titles, we have a lot of competition to go through this season.”
