Atletico Madrid ace Joao Felix returns to club after surgery

Atletico Madrid ace Joao Felix has returned to Spain after undergoing surgery.

Marca says having gone under the knife on July 2, Felix will take the next step in his recovery from an ankle injury by returning to Madrid on Monday.

The Portugal star had surgery performed by Niek van Dijk in Porto after Euro 2020 came to a disappointing end, as he played on 30 minutes before his country were eliminated.

The attacker hopes to rejoin the Atletico Madrid group in training as soon as possible, with the aim of being available for the season opener against Celta Vigo on August 15th.

Having played through the pain barrier for much of last season, Atletico's physio's will work with him closely but will not take any risks.
