Joao Felix says he has a “very good” relationship with Diego Simeone.
Felix is set to start for Atletico Madrid against Chelsea.
And the Atletico Madrid star has denied any disagreements with head coach Diego Simeone.
The 21-year-old, who has vowed to make the most of his talent throughout his career, now hopes to demonstrate that there is a strong working relationship at the club.
“I’m happy here, my family are too. There are good and not-so-good phases everywhere,” he told reporters on Tuesday according to Eurosport.
“I had to defend for Benfica and the national team, too. I’ll do what I have to do here.
“Without a will, talent doesn’t come through. Many talented players could not reach the top due to not having will and I don’t want that to happen to me.
“The moment for me has to be all the time. We’re strong because we’re a very strong group. And that will be the case tomorrow.”
