Football career

Murillo was born in San Sebastián, Gipuzkoa. A product of Athletic Bilbao's prolific youth system, he made his debut for its first team on 24 November 2001 in a 2–1 away win against FC Barcelona. He played in a further 18 La Liga games in the following season, after breaking his leg during preseason.

From 2004 to 2007, Murillo would be an important defensive element for the Lions, playing as a right back or in the middle, but he suffered greatly with injuries subsequently. On 21 December 2008, after nearly a year without competitive appearances, he started in a 1–0 win at Real Betis, only to leave the pitch before half-time injured.

On 11 August 2009, after only playing two matches during the 2008–09 campaign, Murillo moved to second division's UD Salamanca, in a season-long move. In late August 2010 he terminated his Athletic contract and left the club after 11 years, signing with Celta de Vigo also in the second level.

Having joined in the summer of 2011 at the age of 28, Murillo went on to play several years with AEK Larnaca FC in the Cypriot First Division, as part of a large contingent of Spanish players and managers at the side.

Personal life

Murillo's father Luciano and his uncle Eliseo were also footballers and defenders who played for Real Sociedad, having moved to San Sebastián at a young age from Extremadura.
