Reporter Cho Yong-woon = Joao Felix (24), the ‘second Ronaldo’, wore a Chelsea uniform.
Chelsea announced the signing of Felix on loan through the club’s website on the 11th. It is a short-term loan that does not include a complete transfer option, and the contract period is until this season.
Felix is recognized for his talent enough to be called the next Ronaldo. In 2019, when Atletico Madrid recruited from Benfica, the amount invested reached 120 million euros (approximately 161 billion won). He has the advantage of being very influential when he has the ball.
However, Atletico was very disappointing. Contrary to his great expectations, he scored only 34 goals in four seasons at Atlético. His last two seasons even managed to score in double digits, but he only scored 5 goals this season and his playing time gradually decreased.
Eventually, Felix, who had a feud with coach Diego Simeone, agreed with Chelsea, who aimed to strengthen their offensive power in the winter transfer market. Chelsea, who needed a scorer, wanted to join Felix even briefly, so he held it on loan. 먹튀검증
“Chelsea is one of the best teams in the world. I want to help the team achieve their goals. I am really happy to come to Chelsea. I am very excited to be playing at Stamford Bridge.”
Atlético, who sent Felix in vain, is looking for the reason for the failure. Of course, it’s a short-term loan, so I’ll come back in the summer and sign a new contract until 2027, but Felix wearing a different uniform is a step I didn’t think of.
Spanish media ‘As’ asked three questions about the cause of Felix’s failure through a survey: the player himself, coach Simeone, and both. The thoughts of over 10,000 local fans are tense. Simeone’s fault is the most at 38%, but there are also many answers that Felix’s own sluggishness (36%) and both of them (26%).
The media summarized, “Atlético did not make full use of Felix. The key is the discrepancy between the player and the manager. Coach Simeone did not show virtue in Felix’s playing style.”
