Felix himself recently admitted that Barcelona turned out to be the perfect place for him. To be honest, I didn’t expect it. I believed and continue to believe that it’s the perfect place for me, but the truth is that things are going very, very well and I didn’t expect it to be this good. Let it continue to be like this and let it be like this until the end, he told Mundo Deportivo.

I needed to come to a place where I could play my style of soccer.And I’ve always said that with aI read this as the perfect place. Everything is going well – I didn’t expect to start so well – and it was an effort I had to make to find the joy of playing soccer again, Felix said.
