Spurs Youngster Coulibaly Nets First Goal On Loan At Italian Outfit

Souleymane Coulibaly has maintained a positive reputation since joining Tottenham in 2011 amidst a lot of hype dubbing him Spurs’ next scoring sensation.

After impressing at the FIFA U17 World Cup in that year, there was potential surrounding him that labelled him the next Didier Drogba, but so far he has failed to live up to that tag but has made some positive progress with the Under 21 side and NextGen Series boys.

He scored his first goal for Italian side Grosetto yesterday, the side he joined on loan earlier this season to give him first-team experience.

The 18-year-old’s temporary club lie bottom of Serie B, but picked up a draw thanks to Coulibaly’s 95th minute equaliser against Varese

Thanks to 101 Great Goals for bringing this video to our attention.

  1. “Souleymane Coulibaly has failed to impress since joining Tottenham in 2011 amidst a lot of hype..” what a load of tosh!! He’s been prolific in the youth ranks.. ask any spurs fan what think of him or his achievements with the development squad

  2. Tom, where do you get your information to suggest that Coulibaly has failed to impress? Before Christmas he was part of the Spurs Nextgen team and the U21 team which is currently 6 points clear at the top of the Barclays U21 Elite group. Last year before he was part of the Nextgen team that dismantled Inter Milan 7-1 – he scored twice. He is very highly rated at Tottenham and has been sent out to get valuable first team experience in a country in which he is comfortable.
