Kalidou Koulibaly on the arrival of Frank Lampard and his influence

Frank Lampard is the interim coach of Chelsea, and his goal will be to try to revive the team. Although Chelsea is far from fighting for anything in the Premier League, the Champions League can bring them a lot, but they have an obstacle waiting for them in the form of Real Madrid.

The Royal Club is perhaps the toughest opponent for the Blues, however, Chelsea will do their best and try to make a surprise. In an interview with the media, Koulibaly spoke about the arrival of Lampard and the impact he has after his arrival; ‘When you change managers, it’s like you failed somewhere,’ Koulibaly told The Times, as quoted by METRO.

‘You have to keep on fighting, and we’ll give everything. ‘Our new manager is a big legend, so we have to be behind him. We know we can do better – and we will. [He] made a nice speech and tried to speak with everybody and involve everybody.

I know that is difficult when you have a lot of players, like us, but he was really motivated and really motivated us.’

Kalidou Koulibaly and his message

Koulibaly has not forgotten his previous coach, Graham Potter.

The Senegalese thanked Potter for everything he had done for him. Although he is aware that he is not in the best shape, Koulibaly wants to do his best to be his old self. ‘I sent him a message. He helped me a lot. It was difficult for me at first, changing country and moving everything after eight years [at Napoli] and I can tell him thank you.

He’ll have a good future. I know I’m not at 100 per cent yet, but think I’m coming to my level,’ the Senegal international said. Chelsea made a big decision to sign me [last summer for £33 million] and there’s a big desire in me to give back. I want to be part of this club for many years.'
