Inter centre-back Jeison Murillo recognizes that Sunday’s Serie A match against Torino will be tricky, but believes that his side will come out on top.

The 23-year-old Murillo has proven to be a crucial component of Roberto Mancini’s Inter team in his first season with the Milanese club.

Speaking to Premium Sport, Murillo expressed his elation with Inter’s form this season but stressed that Torino will be difficult competition.

“Top of the table is very good, but now we must just concentrate on a game against Torino that will be one of the most difficult we’ve had so far in Serie A,” he began.

“They play well at home, but we will try to win as always.”

Murillo’s efforts in the centre of defence have paid off: in the eight Serie A matches he’s started, Inter have conceded a mere three goals.

The Colombian international is modest enough to not accept all the credit, however.

“The defence’s success is due to the sacrifice of all,” he said.

“Having Gary [Medel] and Felipe Melo in the squad guarantees results because they work so hard for the team.

“I’ve learned so much from them, and especially from [fellow centre-back] Miranda.”

Asked about his prediction for Sunday’s match in Turin, Murillo was optimistic.

“It might be a narrow win, but we hope to bring home the three points.”
