JOAO FELIX delivered a spicy goal celebration after ending a dry spell in front of goal – by shushing his own team-mate.
A fantastic hit from 20 yards sealed Atletico Madrid's 2-0 win at Villarreal on Sunday.
Despite the cool volley helping to deliver a vital three points in the LaLiga title race, Felix produced a somewhat fiery celebration.
Raising his finger to his lips, the 21-year-old shushed his own dugout and shouted towards them in Portuguese.
According to Spanish radio station Cadena Cope, Felix had reacted to pre-match taunts from team-mate Renan Lodi.
The Brazilian defender, one of the Felix's best friends at the club, is said to have teased him over a recent lack of goals – with only two in 2021 ahead of the game.
Lodi posted a reply to the celebration on his Instagram, captioning a photograph of the moment: "Don't get angry, you said it and you did it, we're together brother."
Atleti ended a poor spell of form, which included the Champions League defeat to Chelsea, by winning at Estadio de la Ceramica and going five points clear atop the table.
But £113million signing Felix has only just hit double figures for goals this season.
Nevertheless, Rojiblancos boss Diego Simeone lauded the attacker for his feisty reaction to scoring.
The Argentine remarked: "You'll have to ask him.
"He scored a great goal. He came on and did well in the second-half.
