uRobert Kenedy has been in tremendous form for Newcastle this year and he was presented with his award of FUN88 Player of the Month for March before Sunday’s home game against Arsenal.
That was one of the best results of the season for us and we beat the Gunners 2-1 at home for the first time since way back in 2005.
Kenedy played only 7 times in the Premier League for Chelsea over the last two seasons but he has already started 9 successive games for the Magpies with two goals and two assists.
Kenedy – receiving his award last Saturday
He’s a star player for Newcastle and willing to work his socks off in every single game – the fans love him.
The 22-year-old has made a huge impact since joining from Chelsea in January.
This is what Kenedy told NUFC TV:
“Thanks to all the fans who supported me,” “I’m glad to be player of the month.”
“And I’m very happy to be part of the Newcastle team.”
He spoke those words in Portuguese on nufcTV smiling all the time.
If he does join Newcastle permanently this summer he will need to take courses to learn English.
And whether Chelsea will let him leave will depend on who the new manager is who will replace Antonio Conte this summer.
Kenedy would be a phenomenal signing for us – if we can get him.
