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.”
