Joao Felix is set to start for Atletico Madrid against Chelsea.
And the Atletico Madrid star has denied any disagreements with head coach Diego Simeone. Instead, he says he has a “very good” relationship with Diego Simeone.
The 21-year-old, who has vowed to make the most of his talent throughout his career, now hopes to demonstrate that there is a strong working relationship at the club.
“I’m happy here, my family are too. There are good and not-so-good phases everywhere,” he told reporters on Tuesday according to Eurosport.
“I had to defend for Benfica and the national team, too. I’ll do what I have to do here.
“Without a will, talent doesn’t come through. Many talented players could not reach the top due to not having will and I don’t want that to happen to me.
“The moment for me has to be all the time. We’re strong because we’re a very strong group. And that will be the case tomorrow.”
