João Mario: “You can’t expect João Félix to be the savior in an almost Italian team”

first_imgJoao Mario, international with the Portuguese team and player of the Moscow Lokomotiv, believes that the young star of Atlético de Madrid Joao Felix is ​​one of those “different” players That will end up succeeding. “It is obvious that he is someone who differs. The first time I trained with him, I noticed immediately; there are players that I really like to watch play and Joao Felix is ​​one of them“, he declares in an interview with Channel 11 of the Portuguese Football Federation.One of the factors that weigh on the figure of the young athletic is the amount that the Madrid club disbursed for him (126 million euros). “The value of the transfer that is paid by a player does not weigh us during the game. You try to abstract yourself as much as possible from that factor, but obviously you know the investment that was made and you want to correspond to it, so it ends up influencing in some way, “said Joao Mario. “Although the player is not” guilty “of the amount paid, he always ends up weighing. In Inter I did not feel it so much because the club had many problems,” he added. “In the case of Joao Félix, it is natural to speak and weigh, but If you buy a player for that amount when he is 19, you cannot expect the boy to be the salvation of all problems even more in a team that is almost Italian because of its enormous tactical component“he concluded.last_img read more
