Atletico Madrid great Paulo Futre: Joao Felix a genius; class, cool, talent

Atletico Madrid great Paulo Futre has no doubts about Joao Felix.

Futre has rejected criticism of his fellow Portuguese this season, despite the attacker's inconsistent season.

He said, "No, don't say this, you can't say this. Look what João has done at the start of the season. And last year.

"Because he is young, because the work he has to do on the field, it is not easy. He is not playing for Barça. There is a difficult system and Cholo (coach Diego Simeone) said last year that maybe he had to change the system so that João could play. He is a genius.

"Did you see everything he's done? The other day against Osasuna. When the maximum pressure, Atleti losing 1-0 and, whoosh. It's class, it's cool, it's talent."
