Bigger legacy than Ronaldo? Fan causes outrage with Joao Felix comment

Joao Felix has had a brilliant start to life at Barcelona and fans are predicting big things for the 23-year-old.

Felix joined Barcelona on loan at the end of the last transfer window and hit the ground running immediately, with two goals in his first two games.

Felix is coming off a disappointing six-month loan spell at Chelsea where he failed to make any real impact, on the back of three rather difficult years under Diego Simeone at Atletico Madrid.

His sparkling start to life at Barcelona has caused fans to draw comparisons to another Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo.

After his performance in Barcelona's 5-0 UEFA Champions League win, some fans have speculated that he could end up with a greater legacy than Ronaldo.

Fans react to Joao Felix vs Ronaldo

Fans reacted angrily to the notion that Joao Felix could ever come close to Ronaldo's legacy

One user wrote "Ronaldo means football legacy that's why you just mentioned his name bro"

Another user commented "Why do reason like a fool, common sense u don't have, Ronaldo already had a balon d or at his age, so how do you want to compare this guy with Ronaldo, this guy can never achieve half of what ronaldo achieve in his career"

The comments continued to pour in "Let's wait and see. There won't be another CR7 in this generation"

Felix clearly has a long way to go to even come close to Ronaldo's achievements but he must continue to improve, whether at Barcelona or elsewhere.
