Felipe wins over Atletico Madrid
It hasn’t taken him long, but Felipe Monteiro has fully won over Atletico Madrid’s fans just a matter of months after his arrival.
The Brazilian hasn’t had it easy though, playing backup to Jose Gimenez and Stefan Savic at the season’s beginning.
But he waited, was patient, and took his chance when his first start came against Celta Vigo at the Wanda Metropolitano.
From then he was in and out of the team until Savic fell injured.
Felipe started against Valencia and has been in the XI since, stringing together 14 consecutive starts, and he’s played 90 minutes in each of those matches.
Lemar, the opposite
Thomas Lemar is suffering at Atletico though.
He appears to have run out of credit with the fans and the club, who are now happy to see the back of him in order to cut their salary expenses.
