Mauricio Pochettino facing early headache with Chelsea player unwilling to leave the club
Mauricio Pochettino is already facing an early headache as Chelsea boss with Kalidou Koulibaly unwilling to leave the club, according to a report on Metro.
The report states: “Koulibaly is among a group of senior players Chelsea are keen to move on, but that will be no straightforward task.
“The Senegal international’s £200,000-a-week wages will represent a significant stumbling block, while the 31-year-old is keen to remain at Chelsea and prove his worth.”
Addressing his future last week, Koulibaly said: “It is true it was difficult season,’ he said. ‘For me it was a very hard welcome because to come to the Premier League and have a season like this was not what I was thinking about, but football is like this, life is like this.
“I hope next year we are going to see a better version of Chelsea and a better version of me to help the team and to win something next year.”
