According to the striker, the Colombian forward has had an instant impact in the Italian Lega Serie A team, and he’s settling in well.

Colombian forward Luis Fernando Muriel joined Fiorentina in the Italian Lega Serie A on January 2nd as a loan from Spanish La Liga club Sevilla.

And he immediately made an impact.

The 27-year-old scored two goals against Sampdoria on Sunday in his first match with his new team.

And for teammate Giovanni Simeone, this means it’s the right time to praise him for his work.

“From his experience I can learn a lot, it’s the one that makes him make the difference in front of the opponent’s goal demonstrated already on Sunday,” Simeone told Calcio Mercato.

“It gives further substance to the entire offensive department.”

“From when he arrived, it immediately made us feel the great desire to do well, to leave the mark it has,” he added.

“It is an incentive for everyone. We have to be smart to take advantage of this strong point and at the same time careful to close the spaces in case of restarting the adversaries.”

“We have overcome Torino, an opponent who is not easy to beat, and we cannot stop, I believe that with the right push, let’s not forget that we will play at home,” Simeone added about the team’s next opponent.

“Florence on our side, and the desire to go beyond any difficulty, we will be able to play it, we will fight to say our dream, win, and dream of a title with the club. And for all this, I’m working on it (smile)”.

“What do they tell me when I go to Madrid?” Griezmann is very strong, like Godin and all the others. Many of them have seen me grow, there is a good estimate,” he concluded.
