Chelsea central defender Kalidou Koulibaly is having a tougher time than ever this season.
Kalidou Koulibaly is one of Chelsea’s highest paid players. According to the Italian media ‘Calcio et Refuge’, Kalidou Koulibaly’s annual salary is 15.6 million pounds (approximately 23.7 billion won). Chelsea is at the highest level. However, his performance is insignificant.
He has a record of 14 appearances in the English Premier League (EPL) this season. However, the form of ‘the strongest defender in the league’ during his days at SSC Napoli (Naples) has completely disappeared, and now he feels overall anxiety. 바카라사이트
The Japanese media ‘Football Channel’ criticized Kalidou Koulibaly, saying, “The performance is poor. Above all, the build-up contribution is low. It is rare to see an effective end pass from Kalidou Koulibaly.”
Kalidou Koulibaly is a player who is bound to be under pressure. In addition to the aforementioned salary, Chelsea spent 38 million euros (approximately 51 billion won) in Napoli to sign Kalidou Koulibaly. Considering the salary and transfer fee, it means that you have to show the best performance throughout the season.
However, Chelsea’s ranking continues to fall, as everyone knows. Chelsea, currently ranked 10th in the EPL, are in a position where they cannot guarantee the right to advance to European club competitions in the next season, let alone top 4 in the league this season. The new manager system failed to lay the foundation for change. In the process, the disappointing performance of Kalidou Koulibaly also caught on.
Right before Kim Min-jae entered Naples, everyone commented on Kim Min-jae as a ‘replacement for Koulibaly’. Because Kalidou Koulibaly was such an excellent player. But he now lost his iron-clad reputation like Samson, whose hair was cut off. He desperately needs a turnaround for the rest of the season.
