Kalidou Koulibaly’s agent says the Napoli defender “ate Mario Balotelli for breakfast” in the Champions League tie with Nice.
The Partenopei won 2-0 in the second leg of their Champions League play-off, with Super Mario substituted late on and drawing criticism from Coach Lucien Favre.
“Napoli did what Napoli do and they ate Nice, who looked like a small team,” Bruno Satin said on Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.
“Koulibaly has grown, he even scares me so I can only imagine how the opponents feel! He literally ate Balotelli for breakfast, though he didn’t seem to be a the top.
“I look forward to tomorrow’s draw to see who Napoli get, they’ll definitely face two strong teams as they’re in the third pot.”
Satin also acts as an intermediary for Sampdoria striker Patrik Schick, but wouldn’t be drawn on his future.
“I can’t say anything about this topic, I know but I can’t talk about it. I think there will be a definitive decision in the next few days.”
