Kalidou Koulibaly has just given his first interview as a Chelsea player, showing off his impressive English skills which will help him settle in quickly as a Blue.One of the trickier questions thrown his way was about his age – he’s 31 already and has been given a 5 year contract.He batted away those concerns, and used the example of the exceptional Thiago Silva – 37 and still going strong – to show why he thought he had plenty more to give.“At 31 I’m at a good moment,” the former Napoli defender said.“I hope I will be here for a long time.
