Joao Felix Reveals the Meaning Behind his Celebratory Goal for Barcelona against Atletico

Joao Felix played a decisive role by scoring the winning goal for Barcelona against Atletico in La Liga last Sunday and expressed his joy in celebrating against his parent club.

The Portugal international was clearly not interested in a notorious subdued celebration and explained that he simply let out his emotions at Montjuic.

“Only the people close to me know what I have lived,” he said.

“I just let it go, for everything that happened for me and my family. That’s for me and my team-mates and Barca who have welcomed me.”

Felix also shared his experience of facing his former team and scoring the game-winning goal in the first half.

“We knew it was a very important game, a very hard game, it’s never easy against Atletico. It was a very big win for us,” he said.

“Yes of course I had an extra motivation, to see my former team-mates they’ve always helped me. It was a special game but I’m happy with the win.

“I know I received Rapha’s pass and then I think it was the only way to score, to go over Oblak. I was happy with it.”

Undoubtedly, it was a celebration-worthy moment for Felix, but it’s clear that Atletico fans may not want him back after witnessing his elation in scoring against Simeone’s side.
