Rubro-Negro is in the semifinals of the Copa do Brasil and the final of the Copa Libertadores, in addition to being in the fight for the title of the Brazilian Championship.
This Monday (11), a European football medallion granted an interview to TNT Sports Brasil, and revealed that he would like to come to the country to watch a game at Maracanã, and left a clue for a possibility in the future. It’s about the attacker John Felix, we were asked to choose between two options, and chose one.
“I want to go to Brazil, to see a football game, with Maracanã full, to get to know the beaches there, which are very famous. I don’t have a favorite team. I follow Brasileirão and Libertadores, because more and more players who played in Europe went there, so I do. But no, they haven’t called me yet”, declared the Portuguese.
He also mentioned that the Libertadores final will be between Flamengo and Palmeiras, and that the coach of the São Paulo team is Portuguese, in this case, Abel Ferreira. Asked by reporter Tatiana Mantovani if he had received any “poll” from Filipe Luís, from Flamengo, and Diego Costa, from Atlético-MG, João Félix said he hadn’t yet.
However, when asked which of the two clubs he would like to play for, the Portuguese gave a clue as to which he would choose: “I think I would prefer to play with the red shirt. I always liked to play in red”. In the question, the reporter let him choose between the red and black shirt, from Flamengo, and the black and white shirt, from Atlético-MG.
João Félix still owes football with the shirt of Atlético de Madrid, to which he transferred at the beginning of the 2019-20 season, coming from Benfica. The Colchoneros paid 126 million euros ($543 million at the time), making it one of the most expensive signings in football history. So far, there are 15 goals in 43 games.
