Despite a rocky 2022/23 campaign, Chelsea defender Kalidou Koulibaly hopes the London giants reach the final of the UEFA Champions League alongside Napoli.

The Senegalese star found the going tough at Stamford Bridge this season and is said to be linked with a move away from the Premier League outfit.

However, after beating Borussia Dortmund in the UCL this week, Koulibaly revealed his title aspirations with the club. The African defender expressed his wish to face former club Napoli in the final of the popular tournament.

“I hope to meet them as far as possible, perhaps in Istanbul,” Koulibaly told Sky Italia, as per Tribal Football.

“I also wish them to go a long way and see us in the final.

“It was a bit of a difficult time, we knew this match was fundamental for us.

“We wanted to win it at all costs. We played a great match, I think we put the intensity we had to put in. We wanted to win at all costs and we can be happy.”
