In an interview with zerozero.pt, Thebes says Felix must be a "banner" of the competition and refuses to put a limit on him.
He said, "On a sporting level he brings a lot of quality. Any young international with that talent offers charisma and performance. This is the case with João Félix, who is a player who, with the quality and projection he possesses, has caused a sensation not only in Spain, but in the world.
"This is why Atlético and LaLiga work for him to be a banner of the competition through, by example, from our digital media.
"We're working hard on the profile of João Félix."
