Joao Felix on his future and his 'potential' stay at Chelsea
by | VIEW 454
Joao Felix arrived at Chelsea during the winter as a major reinforcement. Of course, it was a loan from Atletico Madrid. Felix did not show what was expected, just like the whole Chelsea team. Many are wondering if Felix will stay in London and try to fix things.
Judging by his statements, Felix probably won't stay, but there is still a chance for that. ‘I don’t know yet my future.
But these four or five months, I love it.
It’s a top club. Everyone in the club was very good to me, my team-mates [have been] unbelievable.
And I really like to be here. ’- Felix said, as quoted by METRO.
Frank Lampard: There’s no doubt Felix has a huge talent
Frank Lampard also had only words of praise for the Portuguese striker. However, the English expert has certain doubts about Felix's natural position.
It is difficult for him to decide which part of the field to put Felix on, given that Felix is a versatile player. This can sometimes be a huge advantage, but also a disadvantage. "There’s no doubt he has huge talent, that is really visible in training daily in those moments showing what he can do around the box.
I think probably for me coming in I need to find a clear structure and a clear off-the-ball idea for how we work, and that’s the challenge with Joao. If you ask him also he’s not definite [about his best position] – he wants to play here but he can also play here – which can be a plus at times but when he’s not definitely a nine, I need what looks like nine, for me, for the way I want to play.
Those are the things that Joao needs to show, whether it’s here or wherever his future is, I don’t know that."
