Barcelona star Joao Felix insisted he’s not paying attention after securing a crucial 1-0 La Liga victory against Atletico Madrid.
Joao Felix delivered the crucial first-half goal in Catalonia, securing the hosts’ victory. However, his goal only reveals part of the story, as the former Benfica forward was the main focus leading up to the match.
Before his season-long loan move to Barcelona, Atletico players criticized Joao Felix’s attitude. Club president Enrique Cerezo intervened to resolve the dispute and affirmed that Felix still has a future at Atletico.
Atletico players subjected Felix to rough treatment, and his goal celebration was a direct response to a small group of traveling Atletico fans at the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys.
“Every week they speak about me. I’m always a topic in the media but I’m calm”, It was reported by Marca.
“The celebration has been a relief for everything I experienced last summer.
“I don’t listen to what they say, I only look to work hard and improve. I have to thank Barca, as they have welcomed me in the best way.” said Joao Felix.
Felix’s decisive goal against Atletico is only his second in La Liga this season, adding to his total of five across all competitions.
