‘Warrior’ Murillo ready for Inter

New Inter signing Jeison Murillo will wear his ‘lucky’ number 24 shirt and says he’s a ‘warrior’ who will ‘give everything for Inter.’

The Colombia international signed for the Nerazzurri from Granada in a deal worth €10m and was unveiled at a Press conference today.

“I’m happy to be a part of this team, it’s a great opportunity for me,” said the 23-year-old.

“When the doors open to an important team like this, the only thing you want is to arrive as soon as you can. I’m delighted to be here.

“Effectively I feel like a warrior. I want to give everything for this shirt, up to the last drop of sweat.

“For me Serie A will be an experience that will help me to develop. I’ve already noticed that there is a great focus on tactics here.

“At the moment my strengths are speed and the ability to read the game, but my objective is to follow a path of development.

“Inter is a club with a very important history and I think there are the conditions to see us back at the top of the table.

“I will wear the number 24 shirt. In Colombia it brings luck and since I first came to Europe I’ve always chosen this number.”
