Fulham delete fiery tweet after Chelsea's Joao Felix sent off for horror tackle


Share post:


Chelsea star Joao Felix was brutally trolled by Fulham on social media following his red card on his debut – before the tweet was swiftly deleted. Graham Potter decided to throw Felix straight into the starting line-up just days after the striker signed on loan from Atletico Madrid.

And there were glimpses in the first 45 minutes of his talents with the forward creating several goalscoring opportunities. But his first match in Chelsea colours ended in misery after being shown a straight red card for a tackle on Kenny Tete.

Fulham players immediately surrounded the referee demanding Felix be sent off. The match official appeared to wait for confirmation in his year from VAR for his final verdict before pulling out a red card.

Felix was left motionless after being given his marching orders, but replays quickly showed why the decision was made. The on-loan attacker went in for the tackle with his studs up and failed to make any attempt to avoid smashing into Tete.

Social media was quick to react to Felix’s sending off – and so too were Fulham’s Twitter account. They had initially tweeted a simple post which read: “#AdiosJoao.”

Football fans began begging Fulham to re-publish the original tweet. There seemed to be no debate about the colour of the card shown to Felix by the referee.
