Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has revealed the qualities of the club’s newest signing, Koulibally.
Tuchel made the signing having allowed the exit of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen this summer.
The deal costs Chelsea £33m and will see the 31-year-old stay in London for four years.
Tuchel said, “He [Koulibaly] brings experience, quality, top defending quality, height, and everything we’re looking for to play a back three or four,” Tuchel told Chelsea media while discussing the Senegalese.
“It’s another brilliant signing for us and we hope he can show his quality as soon as possible. He’s now training outside, he arrived yesterday.
“It’s a nice group and everybody is very happy that he’s with us now.”
