Murillo: “Joining Samp is a wonderful opportunity”
“I want to get back to being the player that I am,” was the big message from Jeison Murillo, who did not enjoy an easy season last time around. The Colombian defender only made seven appearances in LaLiga, the Copa del Rey and the Champions League for Valencia and Barcelona, leaving him hungry to get back to his best by moving to Italy to wear the most beautiful kit in the world.
“Sampdoria have given me a wonderful opportunity and I intend to make the most of it,” explained the former Inter man. “I’m thrilled to be here and want to enjoy success with Sampdoria, which is a big club with so much history. I’d like to thank president Massimo Ferrero, all the club’s executives and coach Eusebio Di Francesco for the faith that they’ve shown in me. I’ll work hard to repay them.”
