Kalidou Koulibaly assures Osimhen of no racism in Naples

Napoli and Senegal’s star defender Kalidou Koulibaly has encouraged Victor Osimhen to finish his move to the Serie A club.

As reported here on Futaa this month, Osimhen is expected to officially be announced as Napoli’s new striker. Asked to confirm the reports, Napoli’s Koulibaly made no efforts to deny the developments.

“It’s true, he did call me. I reassured him, if he is to come here, it’s the best choice. The rest is up to the directors,” Koulibaly told La Gazzetta Dello Sport.

“We talked about racism and I told him that coming to Naples, he’d have no problems, this is the right city. I too have felt the bitter experience of racist insults, but never in Naples.

“My family is very happy in Naples, I’ve been here for six years and if they hadn’t been happy, I would have already left. My children speak Italian as well as French, it’s a beautiful place to live,” concluded Koulibaly who is linked with a summer move to several English Premier League giants.

Meanwhile, Napoli next take on Bologna on Wednesday evening.
