Atletico Madrid‘s summer signing Joao Felix showed once again just why Diego Simeone paid €126 million for his signature after scoring one and assisting another during a 2-1 win over Juventus in the International Champions Cup on Saturday.
Felix appeared to have netted the opener when he volleyed in but his effort deflected in off Thomas Lemar. Sami Khedira equalised for the Italians before Felix struck the winner before the break.
“For Joao it was a very good game. He has shown a lot of skill and had adapted very quickly which is what the team likes,” said Los Rojiblancos boss Simeone.
“Wherever we put him he has the vision to play in that place which is very important. It is a process to adapt, a process to learn many things but he has everything to get better and that’s the first thing I said to him when he arrived in the dressing room.
“He has learnt a lot and when you learn quickly it doesn’t take long to get to be very successful.”
