Former Atletico midfielder says Joao Felix has to elevate his game

Joao Felix has to raise his game to meet the LaLiga Santander standard, believes former Atletico Madrid midfielder Costinha.

Benfica had lofty expectations last summer with a 20-year-old’s move of €127 million to Atletico Madrid but the Portuguese international has not lived up to them.

“[The problem] is related to the level of each league,” Costinha told Eleven Sports.

“The Spanish league is a lot more competitive than the Portuguese one.”

“It’s a competition with a high rhythm, where everyone plays to win.”

“At Benfica, he had unlimited chances to score, and in Spain, he’s facing a much more balanced reality.”

“He’ll also have to adapt to what [Diego] Simeone asks of him, but I think that, sooner or later, he’ll adapt to those dynamics and they will be an asset.”
