Koulibaly: ‘Napoli have Scudetto dream’

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly isn’t giving up on the “dream” of the Scudetto - “three points is recoverable”.

The Partenopei have taken two points from their last three Serie A games, allowing Juventus to leapfrog them at the top and open up a three-point gap.

“We had a difficult February, but we’ll do everything to get back to winning ways in March,” Koulibaly assured on Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

'Koulibaly? Napoli too small'

Kalidou Koulibaly's agent claims Napoli are 'too small' as a club for his player.

The defender is performing well for the Partenopei and is undergoing negotiations to extend his contract, currently due to expire in 2019.

The club would like to keep him for a longer time, perhaps with a higher salary, but his agent's interview won't be helpful from a diplomatic point of view.

Koulibaly: 'Surprised by Deschamps'

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly was “surprised” Didier Deschamps wanted him for France. “He missed something…”

This week Deschamps announced on TV he was considering Koulibaly for a call-up, but he already has five senior caps for Senegal.

“I think Deschamps missed something…” Koulibaly told RMC in France.

“I am surprised he thought of me. When I arrived at Napoli I knew there was a chance I could get called up. I waited a long time for France to call and it never happened.

Deschamps' Koulibaly gaffe

France manager Didier Deschamps said he’ll consider calling up Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly – who is a Senegal international.

The gaffe was committed during an interview with Canal+ today.

“There is a lot of competition for places, for example Mathieu of Barcelona, Koulibaly at Napoli.”

While Koulibaly was born in France and played for Les Bleus at Under-20 level, he opted to play his international football for Senegal.

As K2 already has five caps under his belt for Senegal, he is no longer eligible for France.

Koulibaly agent: ‘No Napoli rush’

Kalidou Koulibaly’s agent says there’s no rush for a new contract but “often speaks” to Napoli.

It was reported today that a renewal for the defender is close, but his representative believes it’ll take a little time.

“I often go to Castelvolturno, not just to talk and negotiate,” Bruno Satin explained to Radio Crc.

“The last time I went there was to see Kalidou’s son. Even though it’s early to talk about a renewal, the Neapolitans should be calm.

Lazio appeal rejected

Lazio saw their appeal against a partial stadium closure rejected after racist chants at Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly.

The FIGC today rejected the appeal put forward by Lazio, who had claimed the insulting chants were not racist in nature.

They occurred during the 2-0 Napoli victory on February 3 at the Stadio Olimpico.

The €50,000 fine and bans locking down the Curva Nord, Distinti Tevere Lato Nord and Distinti Monte Mario Lato Nord sections therefore stand.
