Atalanta midfielder Matteo Pessina joked with Luis Muriel after the Colombian scored within one minute of his introduction. ‘Who are you, Rafael Leao?’.
The Orobici midfielder, who was replaced at half-time, joked with his teammate asking if he was Milan youngster Leao on a day of quick goals in Serie A.
Against Sassuolo, the Rossoneri striker scored the fastest goal in the history of Europe’s five biggest Leagues and then Muriel confirmed he’s a weapon for the Orobici, scoring within one minute of his introduction from the bench in a 4-1 win over Roma.
The Colombian striker replaced Duvan Zapata after 72 minutes and scored after less than one minute on the pitch.
Atalanta midfielder Pessina joked: “Who are you, Muriel?” A joke that had the entire bench laughing, showing signs of a restored team spirit despite some controversial weeks in Bergamo.
