Joao Félix hit back at his critics after scoring in the 90th minute to help Barcelona win 4-2 against Real Betis on Sunday, January 21st.

Félix joined the Blaugrana on a season-long loan from Atletico Madrid in the summer. Despite clearly showing his love for the badge, he has come under criticism for his poor form in recent weeks.

The 24-year-old was on the bench for Benito Villamarín’s game against Real Betis in La Liga. Ferran Torres scored an extraordinary hat-trick (21′, 48′, 90+2′) and Isco scored the second goal for the hosts (56′, 59′).

With Barcelona looking for a point, Felix came on as a substitute in the 81st minute for Pau Kvarsi. Nine minutes later, the Portugal international ran into the back of the goal and slotted the ball into the bottom left corner.

After the match, Felix said (via barça blaugranes):

“I’m used to people talking about me. When I play and when I don’t play, someone always says something, but I don’t care. I’m confident in myself. So when I’m on the pitch, I try to do my best. After years of doing the same thing over and over again, the best thing to do is not see or hear.”

Felix has played in 26 games this season, scoring seven goals and providing five assists.
