WATCH: Oblak hails Atletico Madrid pal Joao Felix as 'huge talent'

Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak has quickly been won over by new teammate Joao Felix.

The €120m signing from Benfica has been a revelation in preseason.

And Oblak enthused, “We're still in pre-season but it's clear that he's a huge talent. With talent like that he can grow to be a magnificent player. I'm sure that this is the right place for him. He's going to progress a lot under Diego Simeone and he'll learn a lot.

“There's no doubt that he's a great talent and if he continues as he's started, if he trains hard and keeps playing at the level he's shown he'll be a world-class player, no doubt.“
