Senegal international defender Kalidou Koulibaly says he does not regret missing out on playing for the France senior team.
There were rumours that the Napoli 25-year-old defender could have earned a call up to the France national team but he opted for the African side after being fed up waiting for his chance with Les Blues.
Head coach Didier Deschamps famously spoke of monitoring the progress of the former France youth international, after he represented Senegal.
“I waited for a long time for a call-up for Les Bleus,” he told reporters “I know there was a possibility at the time of my arrival at Napoli, but I have made my decision now and I don’t regret it,”he told kwesesports.com
“Senegal have a magnificent team. There are young players, a lot of whom have played in France and now in England.
“I was watching the programme without really paying attention and then I heard my name. He must have missed something. I don’t blame him for it.”
