When can Joao Felix make his Chelsea debut?
Chelsea head coach Graham Potter has given an update on new player Joao Felix who could help the team soon.
It was revealed that Felix had joined the English club on a £10 million loan deal.
Immediately after the signing of the players, there was a question whether Joa Felix would play against Fulham on Thursday – just a day after the signing of the contract.
Potter admitted that due to numerous injured players at the club, the 23-year-old could play in the upcoming match. The coach also noted:
“It was good that Felix is training today and we will see how he plays on Thursday. He is a quality player who can play a decisive role in the last third of the field”.
