Chelsea central defender Kalidou Koulibaly, who faces AC Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday night, knows the qualities of Olivier Giroud. A match he approaches with a very specific objective.
Kalidou Koulibaly was asked about his upcoming duel with Olivier Giroud as Chelsea host AC Milan on Wednesday night in the Champions League. The former Neapolitan has already faced the French striker in Serie A and is very wary of him: “He’s a great player. He showed it in Serie A last year, he scored a lot of goals. He did the same at Chelsea. I think he is a dangerous striker, you always have to be aware of him. We will have a difficult game for the defenders but we will be ready for this game. The most important thing tomorrow is that he doesn’t score and that we win! » did he declare.
Kalidou Koulibaly hopes to convince Potter
Kalidou Koulibaly knows he now has to prove himself to Graham Potter, Chelsea’s new manager: « It’s true that I didn’t play under the new manager. But I’m easy. My time will come. When I’m not playing, I put all my energy into work. I try to give my best in training to show him that he can use me on the pitch. » he added reports BBC Football.
