It’s funny how many English news outlets seem to just have discovered Kalidou Koulibaly’s quality, he’s been one of the best defenders in Europe for a few years.
His performance against Liverpool was one of the highlights of the evening, he even surpassed Virgil van Dijk in a direct duel.
Carlo Ancelotti must be thrilled to have convinced this Senegal international to stay for another season, he will be incredibly helpful throughout the whole year.
This is the guy who managed to stop the Reds’ attacking trio last night, which is no small feat.
