Former Barcelona player, Abelardo Fernández, has criticised Joao Felix’s recent performances for the club in an interaction with Movistar.
Fernández said on Movistar, “The worst thing is not the mistakes he makes, but the attitude he shows after making a mistake. It’s as if mentally, he’s not there.” His comments raised concerns over Felix’s commitment on the pitch.
According to Fernández, the image Felix projects is negative due to his habit of remaining stationary on the field after losing possession of the ball. He stressed that in such situations, a player should immediately make efforts to recover the ball, implying that Felix’s lack of immediate reaction is damaging both to himself and the team’s image.
Critics have noted that this observed attitude may affect the young star’s future at Barcelona.
