Koulibaly made some statements to Once Mondial’s microphones. The defender talked about the attacker with whom he had the most difficulties, but above all he focused on the ‘craziest’ coach who trained him. Here are the statements of him.
Koulibaly: “The craziest coach was Sarri. I’ll reveal the striker with whom I had the most difficulty “
“Favorite player? I prefer Sadio Mané because he is in the national team with me, because I meet him every day. He is a great player, I hope that one day he will win the Ballon d’Or. But Benzema, there is nothing to say. For me I have been saying this for a long, long time, he is one of the best players and forwards in the world. He is the striker I have had the most trouble playing against because he is very, very intelligent. You still see it today. Ask any of my friends, when I played him four years ago years ago I said he was the strongest striker I ever played against and today he proves I was not wrong“.
Sarri, Koulibaly: “He told me that I did not have the right to go to my wife for the birth of my child”
“I had many atypical coaches, they were great technicians but the most ‘crazy’ was Maurizio Sarri. He was very passionate about tactics, he really made us work hard in eleven against zero. But the craziest thing he did was when my son was born and my wife was about to give birth. Sarri told me that I did not have the right to go to my wife for the birth of my child, he was really crazy“.
