REAL MADRID fans urged Joao Felix to “stay away” after he was spotted chatting with Vinicius Junior in the tunnel following Tuesday night’s defeat by Chelsea.
Frank Lampard’s men lost 2-0 in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-finals at Stamford Bridge as they exited the competition 4-0 on aggregate.
Vinicius, 22, had a quieter game than usual but still set Rodrygo up for the opening goal.
Atletico Madrid loanee Felix, 23, came off the bench in the 67th minute and struggled to influence the game as Chelsea were eliminated.
But the couple came together after the clash to have a laugh in the tunnel.
However, Real Madrid fans did not like their Brazilian superstar interacting with Atlético man Felix.
React to social mediaOne person said, “Felix, we don’t want you anywhere near our club.”
Another added: “Felix leave the boys alone.”
A third replied: “Joao you’re not invited bro.”
And a fourth insisted they would rather focus on signing Reece James, replying: “Can he give us Reece James’ number?”

Felix joined Chelsea on loan from Atletico in the January transfer window for £10m.
But there is no option for the Blues to sign him at the end of the season – his Atleti contract runs until 2027.
He has contributed two goals in 15 games for Chelsea.
Manchester United have been linked with a summer move for the Portugal international.
However, it is believed he could cost as much as £88m as the Spanish giants seek to recoup most of the £113m they paid for him in 2019.
