Atletico Madrid and Portugal great Paulo Futre is adamant Joao Felix has the ability to win the Ballon d'Or.
The young Portugal international battled for consistent form during Atleti's title winning campaign.
But Futre says: "He is a genius. He can change the course of a game at any time and he has everything to be a Ballon d'Or."
He also discussed Atletico coach Diego Simeone.
Futre added: "Myth or legend, it would be necessary to invent another word for Simeone. He is a winner and thinks 24 hours a day for football. I gave Simeone a grateful hug after winning in Valladolid."
