Felipe is expected to start for Atlético tonight against Chelsea (first leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League), although recently he was not the first option for Diego Simeone. After a good first season, until all championships stopped due to the pandemic, he became the central fourth in the coach’s preferences.
The former Brazilian FC Porto recently spoke about his moment and his relationship with the coach. «I like being with people who are communicative. And our coach is not. It is someone who makes a decision and nothing else, does not give many explanations. For me it is complicated because I always like to know why and that made me a little uncomfortable. But I understand, I know how he is », he told TNT Sports, he who before the confinement was the fifth player with more minutes with Simeone.
