Koulibaly - Napoli Salzburg
The Senegalese centre-back is not satisfied with the single point his team picked up in Tuesday's Champions League game

Kalidou Koulibaly admitted it is a difficult moment for Napoli after settling for a 1-1 draw against RB Salzburg at Stadio San Paolo. 

Hirving Lozano saved Carlo Ancelotti's men from defeat with his 40th-minute equaliser after Erling Haaland broke the deadlock from the penalty spot in the 11th minute.

The Senegal international gave away the penalty after tripping Hee-Chang Hwang in the 18-yard box.

Tuesday's result stretched Napoli's recent poor run of results as they are yet to win a game since October 23, when they defeated the same Austrian opponents 3-2, with three of their last four games ending in draws.

At the end of the game, Koulibaly voiced the emotion of the players and assured the club faithful of his commitment to turn things around.

"We are not happy: we wanted to win it! For this shirt and for our fans I will always give everything I have: it is a difficult moment, which I will know how to overcome," the 28-year-old tweeted. 

Napoli are second in Group E with eight points after four games and they visit group leaders Liverpool for their next game at Anfield on November 27.
