Former Manchester United and Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has backed new Atletico Madrid signing Joao Felix to be an instant hit for the Spanish La Liga club.
Jose Mourinho talked about Joao Felix during an interview with the Portuguese Football Association’s television channel.
According to him, the level of expectation on the young shoulder of Joao Felix is high but the Portuguese attacker can thrive with it.
Jose Mourinho has been involved with television and punditry in recent weeks having failed to return to the dugout since his dismissal at Manchester United at the end of 2018.
He was sacked after the poor start to the season recorded by Manchester United under his watch.
Jose Mourinho is a big supporter of Joao Felix and he believes the former Benfica attacker can thrive in his new surroundings at the new Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid.
Joao Felix became the most expensive signing in the history of Atletico Madrid after the Spaniards paid €126m for him.
The young Portuguese international was linked with a lot of the big clubs in European football before Atletico Madrid swooped in for him.
Joao Felix was linked with clubs like Liverpool, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Manchester City.
