Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly backs Azzurri‘s former manager Maurizio Sarri and believes his imminent move to Chelsea is going to be a success.
It is understood the Blues are keeping tabs on the Senegal international defender, but new Napoli manager and former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has reportedly asked Aurelio De Laurentiis to stand firm and refuse any offer for the centre-back.
Koulibaly, who won a crucial opener against Poland in the World Cup last evening, told journalists: “They [Chelsea] can expect nice football because he is a very good coach.
“I’m disappointed that he leaves like this but we have now a big coach [Carlo Ancelotti]. We know we can win something with him”.
“I hope he will win something with Chelsea because he’s a nice coach. When a coach like this comes he needs time. So I think they have to give him time because he will change the football of Chelsea, I think.
“At Napoli we enjoyed it very much as players and the supporters enjoyed it very much. At Chelsea I think it will be the same.”
