The 21-year-old also showed his class in Sunday’s Serie A clash against Parma contributing immensely to the club’s 2-0 away win despite starting the game from the bench.
The Nigeria international received huge plaudits from manager Gennaro Gattuso, Lorenzo Insigne and Dries Mertens after the game.

“Manolas and Koulibaly? Having strong defenders is important. We work hard to keep clean sheets.”
Napoli will host Genoa in their next Serie A clash on Sunday.
