Atletico Madrid outcast Joao Felix, struggled to shine at Atletico, and even when he went on loan to Chelsea last season, he couldn’t score as well.

However, the 23-year-old Portugal international already has three goals in two matches for Barcelona, and he’s in very top form at the moment.

Felix oozes class on the ball, and always looks dangerous.

Xavi has admitted that a simple message to Felix has brought out the best in the player.

“I told Joao Felix to have fun, to play in a more simple way. I told him… ‘Simplify your game, and you will score a lot of goals’,” Xavi told the media.

“Joao has understood his role perfectly. He is a great talent and will help us a lot.”
