Napoli star defender Kalidou Koulibaly has explained why does not regret turning down France to represent Lions of Teranga.
Koulibaly was born in Frace and raised by his Senegalese parents, which made him eligble to represent either of the two countries.
The defender eventually opted to represent Senegal and went on to make his debut in 2015 and while France won the 2018 World Cup, the 30-year-old insists he has never regretted the decision.
"It's a choice I've been thinking about for a whole year, whether to play with Senegal or France,” Koulibaly told Calciomercato.
“Then with the help of my parents, my friends the decision came almost natural.
Here are 10 players who rejected Africa to represent a country in Europe last year!
“When I'm with the other players I feel at home. I have never regretted it, not even in 2018 when France won the World Cup. Maybe if I had been there the cup would not have arrived, I believe in people's destiny.
“They deserved it and I am very happy for France but I hope that one day I will raise it with Senegal.”
