Koulibaly singles out two Chelsea stars who have impressed him

Chelsea have spent a lot of money in the last six months.


The Todd Boehly regime has taken the transfer market by storm.

Chelsea spent a record sum in the 2022 summer transfer window.

They then went on to spend the most money of a single club ever in a January window last month, bringing in eight new faces.

Two of those new faces were Joao Felix, who joined on loan from Atletico Madrid, and Mykhailo Mudryk, who joined on a permanent deal from Shakhtar.

Now, Kalidou Koulibaly has singled out said duo for praise:

“They are all good,” Koulibaly told Goal. “But Mykhailo [Mudryk] – I was following Mykhailo for a long time because we were in contact on Instagram so I know him a little bit.

“He’s really, really good in training – really fast, good with the ball – and Joao Felix also, everybody knows [about] him so, when they have the ball in their feet there is like some magic also, it’s good for us.”

On the competition Chelsea’s raft of new signings provide, Koulibaly added:

“We have a lot of quality,” he stated. “We see Joao Felix is here, we see Mudryk is here, and we also signed Noni [Madueke], so we know that they can help us with all the talent we have already with Sterling, Pulisic.

“Now it will be hard for everybody and when it’s hard it’s good, because everybody can give his best to play and after we’ll see the best Chelsea on the pitch, so I think it’s a benefit for Chelsea to have a lot of good players like this.”
