Joao Félix does not forget his ‘rubbing’ with Simeone despite having been in England for several months, where he arrived to wear the colors of Chelsea on loan. The Portuguese reiterated this Monday his joy at having joined the ‘blue’ team, and pointed out the offensive game of the English as the main attraction of the Premier when asked about his role at Atlético de Madrid.
The ‘pullita’ to Simeone was launched at the press conference this Monday, prior to the Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund, in which he was asked about if you feel more free on the pitch at Chelsea than at Atlético de Madrid.
“Chelsea is a team that likes to attack, have the ball, dominate the ball… That’s the football I like to play. I feel very free here and I like it. I love it,” he added, stressing the contrast with the defensive style of the Argentine coach.

In turn, he made reference to the general style of the English teams, to which his game also adapts more: “It’s a different kind of football, because the league is different. The way the teams play in the League or in the Premier it’s totally different“, he stated.
The Portuguese striker arrived on loan – without a purchase option – to Chelsea in January and has played five games between the Premier League and the Champions League, in addition to having served three games through suspension. So the footballer will return this summer to the Spanish capitalwhere his contract binds him to the Metropolitan until 2027.
