The Newcastle loanee believes he’s now more mature to play in the English Premier League giant and he hopes to prove it with his football

Robert Kenedy Nunes Nascimento, better known as Kenedy, believes he’s now more mature than before to be able to play on English Premier League side, Chelsea.

The winger started his professional career in Fluminense, where he played from 2013 to 2015.

He was then bought by Chelsea, but he has been loaned three times: once in 2016 to Watford, and then twice in 2018 to Newcastle United.

And now, he wants to prove he has grown as a professional.

“I hope this year I can make a good season for Newcastle and go back to Chelsea,” he told Brazilian website UOL.

“It is not that I didn’t succeed at Chelsea.”

“I arrived at 19, very young. It was good to be loaned to get more playing time. Better than staying at Chelsea and not play,” he continued.

“I hope this year I can make a good season for Newcastle and go back to Chelsea to continue. I have a dream to return and to be a champion for the club.”

“Just being in the Premier League is already a great achievement. A lot of people come and can’t play. For me, it’s been very good. My dream is to win a major title,” Kenedy explained.

“I played at Chelsea with [Jose] Mourinho, he always helped me and showed me what I had to do in training, what he taught me I take as learning with me, and now I’m learning from another great coach, Rafa [Benitez].”
