Joao Felix has decided to leave Atletico Madrid, as he is tired of coach Diego Simeone not playing him.
The Portuguese striker was transferred from Benfica to Atletico Madrid for 127 million euros in the summer of 2019.
The 22-year-old had a long warm-up and was eventually left off the field in the 0-0 draw with Club Brugge in the Champions League. Simeone chose to activate Belgian Alex Witsel in the 79th minute instead of Antoine Griezmann.
It was the fifth substitution for Atlético. The fact that he was not preferred at all by his coach in a match that had to be won at all costs, Joao Felix took it very badly.
The latter, quite angry, threw the jersey on the ground.
Marca writes that the player of the Portuguese national team has met agent Jorge Mendes, to whom he has expressed his desire to transfer elsewhere in the winter term.
Joao Felix counts 3 assists this season, but he still hasn’t found the first goal
