Good times continue for Benfica youngster Joao Felix, who recently became one of the youngest players ever to score a hattrick in the Europa League. In addition, he has also been linked with top European clubs like Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus, and is well set to make a high-profile switch this summer.
Apart from all these plus-points, Felix has suddenly made headlines in an entirely different fashion – based on his confession during a recent interview.
In a shocking admission, the youngster revealed that his success has lead to girls sending him “naked photos” via social media.
The confession came when Felix was asked about his sudden fame and success, as he went on to say that all of it has helped him with girls.
“The success helped me a lot with the girls. On social media they often send me photos, even naked,” Felix told famous Portuguese presenter Rui Maria Pego, as reported by Calciomercato.
“I don’t think of finding a girlfriend, I’m still young,” he further added. “There is time for everything.”
Hence it appears that all the fame ane glory has not affected the young star in any adverse manner – a good sign.
Earlier, Felix was even reported to be so “insanely talented” that he could definitely be the “next Cristiano Ronaldo”.
