Sevilla centre-back Jules Kounde was back in action tonight for France – his first match since his failed summer switch to Chelsea.
The Blues backed out from signing the 22 year old after Sevilla demanded Chelsea pay close to his release clause of £68m.
It seems the failed transfer affected the defender as Kounde was sent off in the 51st minute of France 1-1 draw against Bosnia and Herzegovina after a rash challenge on Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac.
Reacting to Kounde’s red card, Chelsea fans tweeted:
@panarules joked: “Chelsea has destroyed Kounde. emotional instability edey cause these things.”
@CFC_Bando stated: “He’s just furious Sevilla didn’t let him go.”
@jaylen_kay tweeted: “My man’s frustrated that he didn’t get to join us.”
@VictorK02645225 highlighted: “The failed transfer to Chelsea is affecting him psychologically.”
@ChelseaFCBlogs_ mocked: “Should’ve taken the 50 million @SevillaFC_ENG.”
