Sometimes we all wish we were star footballers you know…

For every matchday squad you make, every game you play in and every goal you score, there’s always something in return.

If it’s not extravagant love from the fans, then it’s a handsome bonus from your club.

Such is the life of Benfica’s 19-year old sensation Joao Felix.

Fresh off bagging an extraordinary hat-trick against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League, Felix has now admitted that he’s received a lot of recognition from girls since he burst onto the scene.

Speaking to Portuguese presenter Rui Maria Pego, Felix confessed of how girls were sending him nudes on social media.

"The success helped me a lot with the girls. On social media they often send me photos, even naked," said Felix.

He, however, insisted he had no intention of finding a girlfriend yet and is enjoying the single life.

"I don't think of finding a girlfriend, I'm still young. There is time for everything," Felix explained.
