Sparks flashed for Felix when coach Unai Emery wanted to bring him back to Aston Villa. The Villa Park team changed skin under the leadership of the Spanish captain. In the 2022/2023 season, Aston Villa ranked 7th on the table, winning tickets to the Europa Conference League next season.
Felix promises to bring the perfect complement to Aston Villa’s attack . The striker born in 1999 helps to increase the depth of the squad when the English team fights in the European playground.
Coach Emery once expressed admiration for Felix’s talent. “He’s a special player. You’d be hard-pressed to find a No 10 with the same technical background as Felix. He can play a role in scoring goals, providing assists, contributing to the game,” said Emery . in March 2023.
