Jeison Murillo has sat down for an interview with WRadio, a station from Colombia, where he explained all of the current goings on at Valencia CF, as well as his potential return to the national side for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Are you happy with your return?
“I couldn’t be more pleased, I’m really motivated after three months out and it was annoying to not be out on the pitch with my teammates during that time. I thank God that I have returned to the group.”
What has changed this season at Valencia CF in terms of mentality, are they a competitive side?
“Our mentality hasn’t changed, it is a winning one, there wasn’t a catastrophe and there were only a few poor results. We know that we are in one of the best leagues in the world and this competitive spirit is key for every team.”
How do you weigh up the season that you’re having?
“There is still a long way to go, we have had a good season up until now and we have both feet still on the ground. You have to go game by game in order to hit the target that we’ve set ourselves and to be able to say you’ve achieved it at the end of the campaign.”
Have you spoken with national team coach Jose Pekerman?
“They are always keeping track of their players, both the coaching staff and the medical department, and for that I am really grateful.”
What are the expectations coming into the 2018 World Cup in Russia?
“It is every Colombian player’s dream to be part of the national team and I hope that I can be too.”
