Liverpool fans have been reacting to the news that Atletico Madrid striker Joao Felix is set to miss the Champions League last 16 clash against the Reds due to injury.
The highly-rated Portuguese attacker pulled up with a muscular injury during his side’s La Liga match against Leganes on Saturday, with fears from the Atleti contingent that he could be out for some time. This throws into doubt whether he will be available for the Reds’ meeting on 18th February. However, he will miss the Madrid derby against the Los Blancos this weekend.
Felix was a substantial investment for the outfit from the Spanish capital, having spent £113m on the ex-Benfica man. The 20-year-old has scored four goals in 24 appearances for Los Colchoneros (as per TransferMarkt), which has prompted a reaction from the Kop faithful with many indicating that they did not rate him anyway.

He’s still young to play with Liverpool so his absence or present doesn’t threat us #YNWA#
