After a three-game winning run, the Parthenopeans were denied a chance to extend the perfect record as Gennaro Gattuso’s men forced them to a draw

Kalidou Koulibaly feels sorry for travelling Napoli fans after their 0-0 stalemate with AC Milan at the Siro in Saturday’s Italian Serie A game.

The defender returned to the side after serving a two-match ban following a red card he was shown in their 1-0 loss to Inter Milan.

He made his 19th league appearance in the encounter and was in his usual brilliant form to help Carlo Ancelotti’s men keep a clean sheet.

However, the Parthenopeans were not clinical enough to break the deadlock and failed to increase their three-game winning run, despite several goalscoring chances created.

And the Senegal international has apologised to their supporters for their failure to secure a win.

“[We] created many opportunities but we did not convert any to goal. Sorry to go home without the three points,” Koulibaly tweeted.

Despite the draw, Napoli remain in the second spot in the league standings having garnered 48 points from 21 games.

They will hope to do better when they face Milan in Tuesday's Coppa Italia fixture.
