Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has given glowing assessment of new signing Kalidou Koulibaly, as the Senegalese star continues to make a positive impact with the London-based club.
The ex-Napoli star joined the English giants with a big reputation as he finally made his Premier League move.
Throughout his time in the Serie A, Koulibaly was constantly in the discussion of making a big move away from Napoli, with the clubs such as Manchester United and Real Madrid said to have been admirers.
That said, Tuchel lauded the towering defender’s impact at the club and labeled him as a strong personality and that he deserved the positive crowd chants in their most recent outing.
“He deserves it,” Tuchel said according to the Metro.
“He’s a very, very good signing, a strong personality, a strong player.
“I’m happy he could play 70 minutes he’s getting fitter and fitter which is very important for us at the start of the season.”
