“Fifty-nine minutes was enough for me to realize that Felix would be a good signing.”
Joao Felix (24, Chelsea) showed off his extraordinary skills, albeit for a short time. Even his exit before his debut could not completely overshadow his talent. 메이저사이트
Chelsea lost 1-2 to Fulham in the 7th round of the Premier League in the 2022-2023 season held at Craven Cottage in London, England on the 13th (Korean time). As a result, Chelsea remained in 10th place in the league with 25 points (7 wins, 4 draws, 7 losses), ending with a draw in their third league match.
Felix’s departure was fatal. He made a dangerous tackle on Katie Tete in the 12th minute of the second half when the score was 1-1, and the referee pulled out a red card.
Outnumbered, Chelsea eventually knelt down with an additional goal from Carlos Vinicius in the 29th minute of the second half. Felix, a rental student, was sent off directly before his debut and became the culprit of the defeat.
Nevertheless, Felix received favorable reviews from his seniors at Chelsea. Cole, who previously played for Chelsea, appeared on ‘BT Sports’ and gave a positive review, saying, “Felix was great. I watched him play for 59 minutes. It was enough to know he would be a good signing for Chelsea.”
Peter Crouch, who played for the England national team, also praised Felix. “Felix was technically great. He showed a lot of lovely ball touches,” he stressed.
Director Graham Potter did not lose faith either. After the game, he said, “Felix will grow further from this. He is young and the best player. I could see the offensive talent that Felix has. I don’t think there was any malice in the tackle he threw. Of course, his feet were a little high and the referee I made a decision. I have to improve,” defended Felix.
