Jeison Murillo was the worst qualified in the defeat of Sampdoria in the Coppa Italia | Colombians Abroad
Jeison Murillo was once again the protagonist in Italy, but once again, as has been the custom lately, his performance on the field was not positive at all. In a match valid for the National Cup between Fiorentina and Sampdoria, the defender from Cali found himself involved in difficult situations from the start of the game when Dejan Stankovic lined him up as the starter and played the 90 minutes of the commitment.
Since Jeison Murillo returned to Italy from Spain, the Colombian defender has only made 13 appearances for Sampdoria and hopes to feature again to be an ideal card for Néstor Lorenzo. However, with participations like the one he had in the Coppa Italia that was highly criticized by the national media, it will be very difficult to achieve it.
Sampdoria visited Fiorentina with the intention of qualifying for the quarterfinals, but it was not the best game offered by those led by Dejan Stankovic either. Thus, Jeison Murillo’s team, who placed their trust in him to lead the defense, was eliminated and he could not avoid Antonio Barák’s goal after 25 minutes, the only goal with which the commitment was defined in the 90 minutes.
However, all eyes were on Jeison Murillo and his poor presentation that he gave during the 90 minutes he played. Although he started again, he did not take advantage of the opportunity he was given and left the match prematurely with seconds left in the game. A double reprimand conditioned him and meant his departure from the field of play, one that the Italian press dared to analyze and they fell on the Valle del Cauca central defender with everything.
Jeison Murillo received the first yellow card at 54 minutes and at 92 he earned the second, which ultimately culminated in the expulsion. Murillo reproached the referee for the action, but without meaning because the decision had already been made. Due to his performance during the 92 minutes that he played, the Italian press was very critical against Cali with a score of 4, being the worst qualified.
Calciomercato mentioned, “disastrous performance by the Colombian who suffers first with Kouame, and then with González. It’s more with a clumsy movement, after rejecting a ball Barak scored a goal. The red one at the end is the garland on the cake”. The match for Sampdoria and Jeison Murillo hoping to vindicate himself will be against Empoli as a visitor.
