Hutter purrs over Benfica's Felix
Eintracht Frankfurt coach Adi Hutter believes it's only a matter of time before a big club snaps up Benfica starlet Joao Felix.
The 19-year-old became the youngest player to score a hat-trick in Europa League when he helped Benfica secure a 4-2 win over Frankfurt in their quarter-final, first leg on Thursday.
As his Frankfurt side look ahead to their home clash against the Portuguese outfit, Hutter has been full of praise for Felix and feels a big club will soon come in for the attacking midfielder.
"He is a rare talent for Portuguese football and for Benfica," Hutter told reporters. "If he continues to play the way he is, he will not be at Benfica for very long.
"He caused us a lot of problems. He has a good touch and makes good moves. He plays and makes others play. Benfica have to be thankful to him for what he did."
