Koulibaly hails Napoli after 'important victory' over Genk
Kalidou Koulibaly has called Napoli's 4-0 Champions League win over Genk on Tuesday night an "important victory."
A hattrick by Arkadiusz Milik and Dries Mertens penalty was more than enough to ensure the Partenopei finished in second place in Group E, behind Liverpool who beat Red Bull Salzburg 2-0.
"When on the field, we always give our best. This is an important victory," Koulibaly posted on Twitter.
Sur le terrain, nous donnons toujours de notre mieux. Nous voulons tous le meilleur pour ce club. C'est une victoire importante qui nous aidera à reprendre confiance.
