The compliments are coming in for Kenedy’s display for us after we thrashed a poor Southampton side 3-0 on Saturday.
Kenedy scored a goal after two minutes and another one after 29 minutes and he was a thorn in the side of the Saints all afternoon on the left wing.
Kenedy made both Garth Brooks and Jamie Redknapp’s Premier League Teams of the Week today.
– scores his second goal after 29 minutes
And now he has been picked by Gazzetta dello Sport in Italy and he makes their European Team of the Week.
Here’s the Gazzetta dello Sport European Team of The Week:
Neto (Valencia) – what a name for a goalkeeper
Ribery (Bayern Munich)
Kenedy (Newcastle United)
Rashford (Man Utd)
Of course, there are some negatives with Kenedy getting all this attention and publicity (from a selfish Newcastle viewpoint), it will be a lot more difficult for Newcastle to sign him.
But perhaps he’s destined to become a great player at Chelsea.
Rafa’s right – we should enjoy him while he’s a Newcastle player.
It’s looking like a huge win-win situation for both the 22-year-old Brazilian and Newcastle.
