Kalidou Koulibaly Opens up on His Struggles at Chelsea
Chelsea's defender, Kalidou Koulibaly has revealed how he has been struggling with the style of play at the Stamford Bridge club.
The Senegalese was speaking in an interview where he confirmed that the style of play by Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter always play with three defenders while he is used to playing with four at the back.
This is the beauty of football. I arrive with a coach who wanted me at all costs, and then he leaves. Both Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter play with the three-man defences, I was used to a four with Napoli. It's another string to my bow, you never stop learning. I knew I was going to have a hard time, and that’s proved true. Even Gianfranco Zola and Didier Drogba had anticipated that for me.
Koulibaly joined Chelsea from Napoli during the summer of 2022, he signed a five-year deal which will keep him at the club until the summer of 2027.
