NAPOLI boss Carlo Ancelotti believes Kalidou Koulibaly is happy to stay in Italy despite being racially abused.
Koulibaly, 27, was sent off towards the end of a 1-0 defeat, with the abuse clearly playing on his mind but his boss is confident the Senegal international has not fallen out of love with Italy.
Ancelotti said: “In England they write that Koulibaly can leave because of the problem of racism.
“I do not think so, Koulibaly is happy in Naples, he’s upset like others, but it will not be a trigger for a goodbye.
“He never showed it, he wants to stay in Naples and in Italy, a country he likes very much.”
Koulibaly is one of the best defenders in Europe and has been on United’s radar for some time.
Following the shocking monkey chants in Milan, Paul Pogba wore a wristband in support of the ace in the win over Bournemouth.
