Atletico Madrid midfielder Joao Felix suffers knee injury

Atletico Madrid midfielder Joao Felix sprained ligaments in his left knee during their training session on Monday.

He now faces roughly three weeks on the sidelines, reports Marca.

In principle, the 20-year-old will not miss any game time as Los Rojiblancos' first LaLiga Santander match after the restart will come away at Athletic Club in just under three weeks' time.

"Joao Felix has suffered a low grade medial collateral ligament left knee sprain, as confirmed by tests he underwent at the Clinica Universidad de Navarra," Atletico's statement read.

This is the third injury suffered by Joao Felix in his first season at Atletico.
