Napoli defender, Kalidou Koulibaly has come out to say that Victor Osimhen actually called him to make an enquiry about racism in Italy ahead of his possible move to the country.
Koulibaly recently revealed that he told the Nigerian that he won’t experience racism issues in Italy because he would be choosing the right city.
According to Kalidou, he was very angry with the racist insult he battled weeks ago but he never let it get to him.
He added that Osimhen should leave the racism problem to the Italian government to handle.
His words, “It is true that he called me. We talked about racism, I told him that coming to Naples he won’t have these problems, he will choose the right city,”
“I too felt the bitterness of the racist insult, but never in Naples. I reassured him, I told him that if he comes, he will have the best choice. Then, the rest will have to be done by the leaders. “
On his own future, “My family is doing very well in Naples and this makes me happy. If I have been here for six years, it is only thanks to them, because if they had not been well, I would have already gone away,”
“My children speak Italian as well as French. At home, we speak both languages. Here we live peacefully, I hear that I will go away, but here I am fine, I do not understand why we should talk about the market when there is nothing on the horizon. Every day there is a new one.
“In football, you never know what happens. I never spoke to the club that I wanted to leave. If we have to find a solution, we will find it, but I have never talked about the market.
“I also read in the newspapers of my future. But I only want to think about playing, I am 100% of Napoli and it bothers me to be approached, every day, to this or that European club.
“We will see what the President will decide, if he proposes to me to extend the contract, which, therefore, would allow me to end my career here.
“At the moment, I still have a three-year contract: there are many, and I am not thinking of anything else but Napoli.
“I wouldn’t say no [to end my career in Napoli]. But I don’t want to deceive anyone. We know how things are in football. Maybe you say you stay for life and then you are sold.
“So I tell the fans that I will give 200-300 percent until I wear this shirt. I have a special relationship with the people of Naples, a pure feeling.”
