SHOCKING NEWS: NOTTINGHAM FOREST YOUNG-STAR JET BACK FROM INTERNATIONAL BREAK DUE TO…..

It is easy to slip under the radar as a new Nottingham Forest addition when over 40 players have joined in the last two seasons.

And when they misspelt Murillo’s name on his shirt for his debut against Brentford last week jokes wrote themselves about Forest not knowing who they have brought.

The Brazilian defender, 21, was a little-known capture from Corinthians when he joined for £12.5m during Forest’s late summer window flurry. But very quickly he has shown potential to be one of their standout signings.

 

Murillo is not the tallest centre-back at 6ft though also not hard to miss with his broad shoulders giving him an imposing frame.

Instead it is his range of qualities and how Premier League-ready he has looked that has caught some at Forest by surprise.

Impressed Forest boss Steve Cooper said: ‘The secret at times to young players when they break through is not to get too high and not to get too low. We have a big emphasis on individual programmes and Murillo will hopefully get the best of that from us.’
