Muriel hat-trick on Viola debut

Luis Muriel made an ideal debut in the Fiorentina jersey, scoring a 39-minute hat-trick in a friendly against Maltese side Hibernians.

The Colombia international arrived in the transfer window from Sevilla.

He was thrown straight into the starting XI with Federico Chiesa and centre-forward Cyril Thereau during the 6-0 friendly victory in Malta this evening.

Muriel made an immediate impact, converting a penalty won by Chiesa, then drilling into the corner from the edge of the box and finally making the most of a Chiesa assist.

A completely different Fiorentina XI beat local side Gzira United 2-0 to complete the tournament.
