As Barcelona prepare to face Atletico Madrid at home, all the attention moves to a certain Joao Felix is currently on loan from the Spanish capital.

Leading up to the game, Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has said that if Felix scores a goal on Sunday against his parent team, he hopes he does not celebrate like he usually does.

“I hope he doesn’t celebrate if he scores a goal,” said Cerezo as quoted by SPORT.

Felix feels for Barcelona if he kisses the crest

It is said that Cerezo will be in attendance alongside Barcelona present Joan Laporta at the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys during the game and while speaking about it, he had nothing but admiration for the Portuguese.

“I always think that football is a spectacle and you have to see the teams with the best players. Of course, Joao Felix is ​​a magnificent player.”

Furthermore, he also shed light on the fact that it is “due to various circumstances, he [Felix] is not at Atlético.”

Cerezo also said that he “wouldn’t be surprised if Joao had his big afternoon, but if not, then it will be the next one.”

Lastly, he also showed a profound understanding, acknowledging the potential scenario that should Felix manage to score on the night, he would express himself by kissing the Barça crest.

“Keep in mind that many players kiss the crest, I don’t know what’s on his mind right now, it’s been two years since I talked to him, but if he kisses the Barcelona shield, it is because he feels for Barcelona, ​​if not, he wouldn’t kiss it,” he said, as quoted by SPORT.
