Chelsea defender Kalidou Koulibaly is still keeping tabs on what’s happening at his former side, Napoli.

Koulibaly spent 8 years at Napoli before joining Chelsea during the summer transfer window.

The 31-year-old has admitted he’s pleased with Napoli who are unbeaten in all competitions so far this season.

Napoli currently top the Italian Serie A, and Koulibaly has said he would run to Naples to celebrate with them if they end the season as champions.

Koulibaly spoke to Corriere della Sera in an interview, and he spoke about a range of issues and also focused on Napoli’s title-charge.

He stated: “I hope so, we don’t say it out of luck. If that happens, I will run to Naples to celebrate, it will also be my Scudetto.”

He was also asked about whether the current Napoli side are better than the Napoli side under Maurizio Sarri, the Senegal international responded: “If they win, we will say that they are stronger. It was a different football, we cannot make comparisons. That Napoli played in an incredible way, we dominated all the teams.

“Today even when they don’t dominate they kill the games, they are extraordinary. I see them solid, compact.”
