FULHAM’s social media team brutally trolled Chelsea newboy Joao Felix after he was given his marching orders.
Portugal international Felix – who arrived on loan from Atletico Madrid this week – was shown a straight red card in the second half of the Craven Cottage clash for a reckless challenge on Kenny Tete.

The dismissal marked the worst possible debut for the forward, who was the subject of a quick-witted jibe from Fulham’s official Twitter account.
Shortly after he was sent off, Fulham’s admin tweeted: #AdiosJoao.”
Footy fans couldn’t help but comment on the trolling, with one tweeting: “Love this.”
Another said: “Fulham tweeted this then deleted it immediately. Brutal.”
And another said: “Only 1 thing to say: #AdiosJoao.”
Another chimed in: “Tell me I’m not the only one who saw that “#AdiosJoao” tweet from the Fulham admin.”
The tweet, however, didn’t stay up for long as it was deleted by the admin.
It could’ve been deleted as adios is the Spanish for goodbye and Felix is Portuguese.

Felix’s red card added to the headache being experienced by under-fire Chelsea boss Graham Potter, but not as much as his team’s display.
The Blues suffered a 2-1 defeat in the west London derby, with goals from former star Willian and Carlos Vinicius condemning the visitors to their SEVENTH defeat of the season.
Potter’s troops are still toiling in TENTH place in the Premier League table and are a whopping ten points behind fourth-placed Manchester United.
Chelsea will be back in action on Sunday afternoon, welcoming Crystal Palace to Stamford Bridge in what could be a pivotal game for Potter’s future.
