-Joao Felix seems to be learning exactly what it’s like to play for Barcelona as he adjusts to life at the Camp Nou.

The Portugal international has admitted in a new interview he’s realised that winning is not enough when it comes to playing for the Catalan giants after scoring against Porto in midweek.

“At Barça the responsibility is greater than anywhere, it is not enough to win, you also have to play well and that means more pressure that we take on with pleasure,” he said.

“It was an important goal for the team, we needed this victory to qualify after two years without the club being in the round of 16 and I am happy to have been able to help.”

Felix’s goal secured the three points for Barcelona and ensured their place in the last 16 of the Champions League for the first time under Xavi.

His strike also ended a drought for the summer signing who now has four goals this season for Barca from 16 appearances in all competitions.
