Chelsea defender Kalidou Koulibaly put in a fine performance in the pre-season clash against Udinese.

Chelsea defeated Udinese 3-1 away at the Dacia Arena on Friday evening.

Koulibaly played the entire game, and his performance was top-notch.

Many Chelsea fans believe the club has signed a perfect replacement for the departed Antonio Rudiger.

See some fans’ response below

Wai An Yung: “He looks good. Composed and feel like a proper leader. If he can improve his passing a little it’ll be like we never had Rudiger in the first place.”

Markcee: “Man certainly is an upgrade to Rudiger, he’s got the long-range passes and wonderful animalistic inter interceptions”

itnaav: “Well worth Terry’s Old no.26 based on whatever I have seen so far!”

Chelsea fans at the game have already formed a song for the summer signing, and Thomas Tuchel was delighted about it, as he expects big things from the new centre-back.

“He deserves [it],” said Tuchel.

“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.”
