We watched the Norwich vs Chelsea game yesterday (0-0) and 21-year-old Kenedy was playing at left wing back, and he looks a good technical player who can grow into an excellent player with the right coaching.
The Telegraph are reporting that since Chelsea have signed Ross Barkley, Rafa Benitez suspects the London club will now let Kenedy’s loan to Newcastle go through next week.
After winning 3-1 against Luton Town yesterday in the FA Cup Newcastle have now won three of our last five games, so things are starting to look up on Tyneside.
A win is a win even against a League Two side, but Luton are top of League Two, and they have a well-organized side.
Kenedy – on his way to Newcastle on loan
And with Kenedy, who turns 22 next month, we have a feeling that if he does well, then Rafa will try to bring him to Newcastle permanently in the summer.
Kenedy is not the finished article, and he will benefit greatly from being coached by the talented Rafa Benitez.
Kenedy usually plays in an attacking role, but he played at left-back for Chelsea when he first arrived from Fluminense and played well for then manager Guus Hiddink in the first half of 2016.
He put in some impressive good left-wing crosses in yesterday’s game, and this lad can turn out to be a good player in the future.
Although as we said – he is not the finished product by any means.
So it will give Newcastle some momentum and fans some hope if we can bring the Brazilian U20 player in this coming week.
Kenedy has played 26 times for the Chelsea first team with 3 goals and 2 assists.
Rafa is still hoping to bring in striker Danny Ings from Liverpool even though it appears he wants to stay at Liverpool and fight for his place.
