LaLiga: The mayor of Madrid is Joao Felix’s No.1 fan
LaLiga Attended match against Getafe
The mayor of Madrid, Jose Luis Martinez Almeida, was just as amazed as the rest of us by Joao Felix‘s performance against Getafe.
Almeida, who is an Atletico Madrid fan, attended the match at the Wanda Metropolitano in his club shirt.
Felix was the star of the show as Los Rojiblancos ran out 1-0 winners over their city neighbours, with the new signing winning a penalty at the end of a mazy run.
“Joao Felix is the best signing in Atletico‘s history,” Almeida said. “He reminds me of [Paulo] Futre.”
The mayor was greeted and given support by the Atletico fans as he made his way to his seat and the crowd acknowledged him with a chant.
“It was about time we had an Atletico [supporting] mayor,” they sang.
Almeida has also promised the president of Rayo Vallecano that he will attend their next match at Vallecas and he’ll also go to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu when Real Madrid invite him for a game.
