‘Do you want to fight?’ – Joao Felix angrily confronted by Jose Gimenez as Koke accuses Barcelona playmaker of trying to get ex-Atletico Madrid team-mate sent off

Joao Felix was angrily confronted by former colleague Jose Maria Gimenez before being pulled away by Koke during Barcelona’s clash against Atletico.

Joao Felix, who is on loan from Atletico Madrid, scored the only goal of the match against his former club as Barcelona edged out Diego Simeone’s side in La Liga on Sunday.

During the match, Felix had a heated exchange with former team-mate Jose Maria Gimenez who angrily confronted the striker after committing a foul on him outside the penalty box.

Los Colchoneros skipper Koke was quick to react to the situation as he pulled his colleague away and warned him that he could pick a second yellow card and get sent off. The Spanish international said, “Here, calm down. Don’t you see? He’s looking for you to get a second yellow card.”
