“The coach has shown faith in me and I want to repay him with my personality on the pitch”, Murillo told the Daily Telegraph.

“It’s still very early in the season and if we click, and stay united, we can even compete for European competition.”


Nottingham Forest are winless in their last two games and it remains to be seen whether Murillo will be able to inspire his team to a win at the weekend against strugglers Everton.
