Joao Felix has named Cristiano Ronaldo as his mentor while expressing his admiration towards Mason Mount ahead of Atletico Madrid’s Champions League clash with Chelsea.
Felix, who is in line to feature against the Blues in the first leg of Atletico’s round-of-16 tie, has benefitted from the wisdom of Juventus talisman Ronaldo in the early stages of his career.
The 21-year-old says his fellow Portugal international is always on hand to give him advice which has helped him to develop his game and prepare for big matches like the one he will be involved in on Tuesday night.
Asked to open up on his relationship with Ronaldo, Felix told the Daily Mail :
“Cristiano is a big influence for me.
“When we are with the national team, he always tries to give me and all of the young guys advice about work, motivation, everything.”
