Chelsea loanee Robert Kenedy seems delighted at doing well in his spell at Newcastle United.
After having played the last six Premier League games for the Magpies, the Brazilian has finally found some sequence and seems ready to show his potential.
Kenedy has given an interview to Brazilian outlet UOL this week, and couldn’t hide his excitement for finally getting all the game time he wanted.
“This new stage with Newcastle’s shirt makes me very happy,” Kenedy told UOL. “It’s very difficult for a player to stay a long time without playing, even more to get back in the rhythm of the Premier League.”
Asked about the chance of making a permanent transfer, the 22-year-old has made it clear that he’s fine with it in case the clubs reach an agreement.
“If it’s good for everyone, it would be a pleasure to continue wearing the shirt of this great team.”
UOL also wanted to know about a subject that might sound a little strange to Newcastle fans. That’s because Rafa Benitez has lost two World Cup of Clubs finals to Brazilian sides. First when managing Liverpool, when he lost to São Paulo, and then in charge of Chelsea, when the Blues were defeeated by Corinthians.
Kenedy claimed that this matter was never discussed between the two of them, and made sure to praise the manager: “He insists that I learn to speak English, he acts with me like a father, and I learn a lot from him.”
