Robert Kenedy has been interviewed in the Mail today, and he’s been getting a lot of attention since he came on loan to Newcastle in January and has been a starter ever since.
He has made nine successive starts and has scored two goals and has two assists and been playing very well on the left wing.
Newcastle are flying at the moment with four wins in a row.
Newcastle hope to sign Kenedy permanently this summer, but it’s not a certainty by any means we will be able to do that.
Chelsea may decide to keep him at Stamford Bridge next season, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
Great shot of Kenedy and Rafa Benitez – during Southampton win
But the 22-year-old seems to be enjoying things on Tyneside, and this is what he told the Mail today when asked about his future:
“I am enjoying my time at Newcastle, but obviously I have a contract at Chelsea.”
“If something occurs then I will be more than happy, it is a good place for me. I like it.”
“Rafa helps me a lot, every day. But the thing I am most thankful for is that he had belief in me and gave me this chance.”
“I never imagined it would have gone so well.”
“They have amazing fans, they are crazy for the team — fanatical, beautiful,.”
“I feel privileged to be around them.”
Kenedy would be a terrific signing for us, and the fans just love the lad!
