Koulibaly expects Napoli stay, but...

Kalidou Koulibaly ‘thinks’ he will stay at Napoli but refused to completely commit himself to the club. “We’ll see what happens...”

Roma’s Kostas Manolas is seen as more of a potential centre-back partner than replacement for Koulibaly, although the Senegalese was recently the subject of a mega bid from Manchester City.

“I don’t know, I think so but I have to play the AFCON and then after that I’ll go back to Napoli,” he told after his country’s 2-0 win against Tanzania at the Africa Cup of Nations on Sunday evening.

“Everyone’s speaking about me, but I’m only speaking about Senegal, because that’s my objective today and I want to achieve something big with Senegal.

“Senegal achieved something great today. I am 200 percent with Senegal and 200% with the 15 million Senegalese people. 

“I’m relaxed, I want to focus on the Afcon and after that return to Napoli and we’ll see what happens.

“The most important thing now is to win with Senegal.”
