Felix wants to be in the match against Liverpool. So far, his first season at Athleticism is being discreet and a muscle injury has caused him to miss the last derby. His goal is to be ready for the next 18 February and to be in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final against Klopp’s team. The Portuguese came to Atletico as Griezmann’s successor, becoming the most expensive signing in the history of the Madrid club, but so far his performance was not what was expected.
“It’s going to be a very difficult playoff, Liverpool are in great shape, in a great way, it’s the current champion of the competition and it’s going to be tough, even more so against a rival like this Liverpool,” said the player in a preview of an interview he has offered to El even Sports and to be fully offered on Friday. Among other things, the Atletico player explains what his first encounter with Cristiano Ronaldo was like, something that shocked him. “At the time I seemed to be inside a video game, I was used to watching him play on television, I had seen their matches, but I had never had it around. It seemed to be three feet high, He was not accustomed to seeing him nearby, he was strange,” says the attacker from Atlético, who first matched Cristiano in a call-up with the Portuguese national team.
This season, he has also been able to measure himself against Cristiano in the Champions League. Atletico measured himself with Juventus. Féliao Félix failed to score the Turin team, although he does score two goals in the competition. The ones he did to Lokomotiv, one in every game. It is expected to be available to Simeone for those continental matches. For now, in front of The Grenada will be low.
