Koulibaly: '110 per cent for Napoli'

Kalidou Koulibaly explained his poor start to the season and why he’ll “give 110 per cent” for Napoli. “It fills my heart when they cheer.”

The Senegal international put in a magnificent performance in tonight’s 2-0 Champions League win over trophy holders Liverpool.

It was a far cry from the own goal that gifted Juventus a 4-3 victory only a couple of weeks ago.

“I arrived late to pre-season training as I was at the Africa Cup of Nations and Kostas Manolas had joined a new team, so it took us a while to learn how to play together and we conceded a lot of goals, but we’re improving,” Koulibaly told Sky Sport Italia.

“I try to give 110 per cent to these fans, as they give me so much love and I want to repay them. I throw myself into challenge for them, as I want to take the Napoli colours to the top, so it fills my heart when they cheer for me.”
