Chelsea’s summer signing, Kalodou Koulibaly has suggested that the club’s loanee, Romelu Lukaku struggled in the Premier League last season, due to a lack of ‘confidence’.
Koulibaly completed a move to Chelsea from Serie A club, Napoli earlier this summer before Lukaku completed the reverse move, as he secured a loan back to Inter Milan.
The Senegal defender, who knows Lukaku well from their time playing against each other in Italy, suggested that there could have been issues in the striker’s ‘private life’ that caused on-pitch struggles.
Speaking during his press conference on Wednesday,
“Romelu is a good player, a nice player, a talented player.
“He is very strong and I was used to playing against him in Italy – I think he didn’t like to play against me!
“Last year I think maybe he didn’t have the confidence he needed to play like he wanted. Maybe something else, I don’t know.
“Football is not all about the pitch, it is also your private life and everything else, so maybe it was something that didn’t work with him over here.”
“We have a lot of talents, a lot of good players, a lot of winners, a lot of experienced players, a lot of young players. I wish Lukaku a good season but I wish Chelsea a better season.”
