Udinese finished the season in fifth place.
"I am happy that we succeeded in this great achievement, so of course we hope to do even better next season," Colombian forward Muriel told the Corriere dello Sport.
"Nobody believed in us, but in the end our hard work paid off and we recovered those points we had lost at the start of the campaign.
"We proved our worth thanks also to our Coach, Francesco Guidolin. Now I'll be on international duty until June 11, so can't think about a vacation until after that."
