Koulibaly has 'small lesion'

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly was sent back from international duty with Senegal due to “a small lesion” in the thigh muscle.

The centre-back returned home early as a precaution and the chief medic of the Senegal team told Radio Marte some details.

“Koulibaly arrived already carrying an injury after Sunday’s Serie A game,” explained Pape Fedhior.

“He had tests to evaluate the extent of the injury and found a small lesion between the small and large adductor.

“Seeing as the pain was not going away, he returned to Naples to continue his treatment.”
