THE BALL – “I don’t think João Félix left upset” (Atlético Madrid)

João Félix was once again in the spotlight at Atlético Madrid. The Portuguese striker helped Koke (49′) for the winning goal against Rayo Vallecano (1-0), but was finally replaced at 64′, and did not hide his dissatisfaction with Diego’s option Simone.

Faced with the possible boredom of João Félix, the Argentinian coach was peremptory: “I don’t think that João Félix left upset. I was trying hard and I knew Correa and Luís Suárez were waiting to get in.

Simeone praised the display of mattress.

“In the first half, we managed to dominate and impose our game. At half-time, I told them that we had to be calmer in the offensive part to create more situations and we ended up scoring a goal for Koke. It was a complicated match, because Rayo Vallecano doesn’t give up,” he concluded.
