Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has said that Kalidou Koulibaly is fully fit and ready to play in the Premier League.
Koulibaly has completed his £33m move from Napoli to Stamford Bridge.
However, Tuchel hopes the 31-year-old can emulate Thiago Silva by becoming a key player for the Blues for years to come.
“It’s nice he takes the challenge right now and we have Thiago Silva, who is even older and super experienced and still at the peak of his game.
We hope Kalidou can do the same and play for many years for us.
“He is totally fit and ready for the challenge and he needs to be, because we need him in top shape,” Tuchel said at the Allegiant Stadium, via the Evening Standard.
