Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti believes Manchester United transfer target Kalidou Koulibaly is happy to remain in Italy despite being the victim of horrible racial abuse.
The Senegal international was subjected to monkey chants during Napoli’s 1-0 defeat to Inter Milan over the festive period.
This led to suggestions that Koulibaly may look to quit Napoli, with United strongly linked with the centre-back, as reported by ESPN.
But Ancelotti has dismissed the notion that racism will lead to the 27-year-old’s exit.
“In England they write that Koulibaly can leave because of the problem with racism,” Ancelotti said, as quoted by The Sun.
“I do not think so, Koulibaly is happy in Naples, he’s upset like others, but it will not be a trigger for a goodbye.
“He never showed it, he wants to stay in Naples and in Italy, a country he likes very much.”
It is disgraceful to see a footballer carry out his duties on match day and have to deal with such bullsh*t from a bunch of ignorant tw*ts.
Worryingly, incidents of a similar nature happen in the UK, so the view that leaving Italy would make things better is not entirely true.
There are idiots in every country. Idiots who don’t know how to behave themselves.
The video below shows hilarious footage of Koulibaly’s school of defending.
I’ve no idea if Koulibaly will end up at Old Trafford, but I’m a big fan of him shoving teammates into position. Imagine him throwing Phil Jones about like a rag doll pic.twitter.com/KViJ0SND7c
