Manager Breaks His Silence On Kenedy Loan

Once Kenedy passes his medical at Newcastle and maybe that will be until tomorrow we should have the 21-year-old in on loan for the rest of the season.

And Kenedy will be a good signing for Newcastle and help us avoid that dreaded relegation.

And Antonio Conte has verified he will be moving to Newcastle all being well with his medical and he has some good advice for the talented 21-year-old Brazilian.

It seems the Chelsea manager see Kenedy as a long-term player at Chelsea.

Kenedy – young Chelsea player starting loan spell at Newcastle

This is what Conte has said today:

“Yes, I think he is going on loan to Newcastle.”

“We are talking about a young player, with great potential but at this moment in his career, he must play regularly.

“It is a great way for the club, we used same way for Christensen. Now he starts for Chelsea.

“To go to Newcastle, it’s a great challenge for him. It is a great opportunity but he must be ready to fight to play at Newcastle.”

“Last season in the first six months for Watford he struggled to play, but now he is more ready. He played with us many games and he can show his potential.”

Kenedy went on a season-long loan deal at Watford in August of 2016 but he made only one appearance for the Hornets in a 2–0 away defeat against Burnley.

But he struggled with injuries and then manager Walter Mazzarri, confirmed that Kenedy had returned to Chelsea in early December after a disappointing loan spell.

We hope he will not have any injuries in this loan spell and that Rafa can bring out the best in the Brazilian.

He should be a (very) good signing for us.

    Can he play striker LOL

    I haven’t logged on for ages – years in fact as I am so surprised at how (Overly) personal a lot of the comments are these days.

    There seems to be an issue with a lot of people not believing the striker 20m thing. This, for me, is because if we had any other manager than RB nobody would believe it was true however with Rafa a lot of people hope that it is – It’s the hope that kills us!!

    Wow. Just wow. Yeah, Rafa. Champions league winning manager, you better play him there or else. Fcuk me, what are people on?

    Getting pelters already. He’s not even signed never mind played ffs!


    And I hope rafa plays kenedy as an inside forward on the right side if midfield. That’s his best position. He scored 14 goals and 10 assists in my Fm17 save.

    I hope rafa realises the threat kenedy may pose coming in from the right side.

    Happy to get someone in to push for spots and has something to prove so he’ll give it his all.

    A half decent goal scorer on a permanent or loan deal and I’ll forget all about this takeover mess for now.

    Just had a laugh looking to the right at Ed’s list of our top goal scorers. Top strikers each on 4 and our captain, a CB, on 2… Don’t need to be statistician to point out what’s wrong with that picture.

    Want to give yourself a real scare… Check the following link for 2008-9 and 2015-16. Terrifying right.
