Chelsea transfer news: Twitter reacts to Joao’s red card on debut

Joao Felix, Chelsea, 2022/23

Chelsea’s latest signing Joao Felix received a red card on his debut against Fulham in the Premier League.

Felix was brought in on loan from Atletico Madrid yesterday and was a surprise inclusion in the starting lineup today.

And for 57 minutes, he showed why he is the fifth-most expensive player in football history.

His technical ability was on full display; drawing fouls, taking on defenders and creating chances. Then, a moment of madness.

Felix made a horrendous tackle on Fulham full-back Kenny Tete and was sent for an early bath. He will miss the Blues’ next three matches.

Felix was deserving of the red card for what is an outrageous tackle by anyone’s standards – even Diego Simeone’s.

Felix has been described as ‘too soft’ for Simeone’s style of play. Who would have thought he’d get sent off in his first game away from the club.

Chelsea were already paying an incredible £9 million for a five-month loan, which some people are pointing out is now down to four.
