Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly back with a bang as he scores 'rabona' in training

Stewart Robson delves into how Maurizio Sarri transformed Napoli and what he'll need to do to replicate a similar turnaround at Stamford Bridge.
With Maurizio Sarri's appointment at Chelsea now official, Gab Marcotti explains what the former Napoli manager brings to Stamford Bridge.

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly showed his incredible array of talents by scoring a rabona  in training.

Like all of the European clubs' World Cup stars, Koulibaly was given an extended break following his country's exploits in Russia. Despite securing an impressive opening game victory over top seeds Poland, Senegal cruelly crashed out at the group stage on the much-maligned fair play rule.

And perhaps it was the frustration of Senegal's unfortunate endeavours in Russia which were behind Koulibaly's stunning effort. Napoli tweeted a short clip which showed the central defender taking the ball and terrorising the man in front of him by feinting to go one way and then the other.

He used his nimble feet to bamboozle his opponent and create space to fire in with his right foot. Yet, surprisingly, he dragged his left behind and fired the ball into the top corner.

Last season, Koulibaly famously scored a last-minute winner against Juventus with a bullet header -- the type of goal more akin to a central defender. But Koulibaly is clearly capable of scoring all types of goals.
