From being a leader in the field to one of the most criticized: Murilo’s complicated moment in Celta

Drafting CO

Jeison murillo was headline in the Celta de Vigo vs. Villarreal for the 14th day of LaLiga Santander. The Colombian finished the first half being one of the leaders of the central defense; however, for the second half, he did not return to the field of play. He was replaced by Néstor Araujo to the surprise of many.

The first rumors indicated that it was a physical problem, because the Mexican was located in the same position; however, it was all about a “wake-up call or punishment”, as Diario Marca has described it.

Eduardo Coudet, coach of the celestial team, implied after the duel that he was upset with some of his players, including Murillo. He pointed out that the lack of concentration in recent games bothers him by conceding too many goals and having to try to come back from the beginning.

The aforementioned Spanish media confirmed that Murillo’s change occurred because ‘Chacho’ was not happy with his performance in the first half. This was a hard blow for the Colombian who until now has been one of the trusted men of the Argentine DT.

This is the first time since Murillo arrived at Celta there are doubts about his performance. Fans and journalists analyze which is the best central pair for Celta de Vigo. Jeison has always been seen as one of the leaders of the squad, but they agree that he is not at his best.

This will be a new challenge for former FC Barcelona. He still hopes to be taken into account again by Reinaldo Rueda for the Colombian National Team. There are four games to play in these Qualifiers heading to Qatar 2022 and it only depends on him to wear the tricolor shirt again.
