I’ll quit if Kalidou goes

Napoli manager Luciano Spaletti will resign if Kalidou Koulibaly leaves the club this summer, according to reports.

Koulibaly, 30, is one of the most sought-after defenders in world football.

Many clubs have tried to sign him over the years, but Napoli have refused to let him go.

Reports are suggesting that the defender wants to move away this summer, but Spaletti is now threatening to quit as manager if the club allow him to leave.

According to Corriere dello Sport as per Spanish outlet Sport, the 63-year-old has informed the club of his plans.

However, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has already admitted that they cannot force the defender to stay.

He said: “He is a symbol of Napoli, and if he wants to no longer be a symbol, he must decide.

“We must decide. We want Koulibaly to stay, but people can’t be forced to stay.

“Everyone has their own dignity and needs. We respect everyone.”
