Spalletti demanding Napoli keep hold of Koulibaly

Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti is demanding they keep hold of Kalidou Koulibaly.

The defender is being linked with Barcelona.

“Koulibaly in my view is not for sale, just like last season when I threatened to chain myself to the gates if he was sold. I'm doing it again!" said the coach in his press conference.

“This is a player always open to giving a helping hand, knows where to intervene and how to raise the level, he does what is needed. We want to have another important season, so he cannot be sold.

“People say you can get a younger player, but you can't buy a leader who developed here over so many years, who lives and breathes the city and gives that passion back on the pitch.

“Kalidou is not the same as the others for many reasons, so he needs particular focus. These are all things we'll discuss over the next few days."
