Koulibaly trains for the first time | News | Official site
After touching down in Orlando last night, Chelsea got back to work in sunny Florida with Kalidou Koulibaly training for the first time with his new team-mates.
The Senegalese defender, who completed his transfer to the Blues from Napoli before flying to Las Vegas to join the team, was part of the team’s training at our new base in Orlando on Monday.
Koulibaly looked lively throughout and proved his fitness level was in good shape as he was spotted leading the running drills.
Raheem Sterling, another newcomer, has also been training and the pair could be ready for their first outings as Chelsea players when we face Charlotte FC on Wednesday. Don’t forget that this match can be watched live and for free on The 5th Stand app and on the official Chelsea website.
It was a good session for the Blues in Orlando, with Thomas Tuchel and his team working hard with the players as preparations intensified ahead of our next game.
A lot of fitness work was undertaken before the focus shifted to possession and form, culminating in small-scale games and finishing training.
