Chelsea loans out Kenedy to Newcastle
LONDON (AP) — Chelsea has sent Brazilian defender Kenedy on loan to fellow English Premier League team Newcastle.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte was happy to let the 21-year-old Kenedy leave to encourage his development and has compared the situation to that of Andreas Christensen, who has proven himself at Stamford Bridge since spending two years on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach.
LONDON (AP) — Chelsea has sent Brazilian defender Kenedy home from its Asian tour after he made offensive comments about China on social media.
Kenedy and Chelsea previously issued apologies for the comments made ahead of Chelsea's 3-0 friendly win over Arsenal in Beijing on Sunday.
The since-deleted messages featured a profanity relating to China and a message mocking a security guard he photographed. The 21-year-old was "strongly reprimanded and disciplined," Chelsea said Sunday.
