Koulibaly to miss Barcelona?

Kalidou Koulibaly is still not training regularly with Napoli, so it’s feared he will miss both games with Brescia and Barcelona.

The Senegal international has been struggling since a serious thigh strain on December 15, only returning for one appearance against Lecce on February 9.

He looked very rusty and was left out of the squad for the trip to Cagliari, as coach Gennaro Gattuso confirmed the defender still felt pain in his thigh.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Koulibaly did not train today either and is not expected to be in with the group tomorrow.

It means he’ll miss the Serie A match with Brescia on Friday and looks as if he’ll be out of next week’s Champions League Round of 16 tie with Barcelona too.

At this point, Kostas Manolas will have to be partnered by Nikola Maksimovic.
