The Atelti defender believes his teammate has a great future ahead of him and when the time is right he would even have the chance the Ballon d’Or award.

According to

Atletico Madrid


Stefan Savic


Joao Felix

can win

Ballon d’Or

someday but first he needs to win a few titles with Los Rojiblancos. Felix, who joined Simeone’s squad in 2019, became the club’s most expensive deal with a €126 million worth of contract.

Savic, who believes his Portuguese teammate can go beyond lengths, said:

 “He is a different player, something that we did not have in the squad. He is still a young boy, he has room to grow and you have to leave him alone."

"You have chosen the best possible club to grow. He has a great future and if he continues like this, I have no doubt that he can be a great player or a Ballon d'Or, but before that he has to win something with the club "

The defender later added on their chances of winning the


title by saying:

“We are very good, but we don't like to talk now about how the League will end. It is too early to make calculations to win the League. We are very good, we have won eight games, but we did not get out of our 'game by game' and hopefully when the year ends we can win a title.”

"Hopefully we can continue in this line until the end of the season."

When asked if not taking the league title would be a failure to them, Savic responded:

“It is not a failure if we don't win the league, for sure. There are other very good teams. No one can force us to win anything. The team tries every year to win titles. That's how it is.”

"We have won the Europa League, we have won the Super Cup, we were very close to winning the Champions League and we are going to fight all the titles.”

"This team has a lot of potential but it is still early to know how this season will end."
