Koulibaly out of Inter-Napoli

Kalidou Koulibaly is reportedly out of tonight’s Coppa Italia semi-final between Inter and Napoli, as he is still not fully fit.

It is the first leg at San Siro and kicks off at 19.45 GMT.

The Senegal international made his comeback from a hamstring injury at the weekend, featuring in Napoli’s 3-2 home defeat to Lecce.

That was his first appearance since December 14 and showed the centre-back in clearly rusty form.

According to multiple sources, Koulibaly will therefore be rested for tonight’s Coppa Italia semi-final.

Instead, Kostas Manolas will partner Nikola Maksimovic, the latter also just coming back from an injury lay-off.

Faouzi Ghoulam, Kevin Malcuit, suspended Elseid Hysaj and transfer-listed Amin Younes did not make the trip.
