Kalidou Koulibaly: Chelsea and Senegal’s Star Sells Videos of Himself Online to Supplement His Income

  • Kalidou Koulibaly has taken up a side hustle of selling personalized messages of himself to his fans online
  • The Chelsea star records messages and sends them to fans who pay a good amount of money to their favourite celebrities
  • The Senegal captain is, however said not to be on the website for money as he is already on a good paycheck at Chelsea

It has now been revealed that Chelsea defender Kalidou Koulibaly sells videos of himself online as a way of getting extra cash.

Koulibaly is currently on a very decent wage after penning a four-year contract with Chelsea. The former Napoli star ranks high on the world's best defenders list and therefore, his high income is not in question.

Daily Mail reports that Koulibaly is not after the money, but he is in it for fun. The videos fetch him a substantial amount of money. He joined an American website called Cameo, where subscribers order personalised messages from their stars.

Koulibaly's platform indicates that the 31-year-old will do a message for a fan for a fee of around 80 euros each. The video is no longer than 20 seconds.

A source close to Koulibaly mentioned to the Mirror that he is not desperate for the money.

This is just a bit of fun. He finds time to talk to his fans directly between his busy schedule of training and matches – and they don't mind paying up.
It is also a great way to build your brand off the pitch – and we all know a footballer's career doesn't last forever. It's a win-win.

Manchester United's captain Harry Maguire is also on the site with videos from him starting at 225 euros.

Koulibaly is among a group of players whose loss of form is a concern for Senegal ahead of the World Cup

Sports Brief had earlier reported that with the FIFA World Cup now barely two months away, African football lovers and particularly Senegal fans, are losing sleep over the loss of form of the star players in Aliou Cisse's squad.

Cisse led Senegal to its maiden Africa Cup of Nations title at the start of this year after beating Egypt on post-match penalties. They then beat the same opponents to book their spot in Qatar.

Cisse's team has always been made of elite professionals who often ply their trade in Europe's top leagues. But if the recent dip in form of his top stars is anything to go by, then the dreadlocked tactician needs to be worried.
