Kenedy embraces new positions and Chelsea FC game time


Chelsea FC prospect Kenedy has spoken about his ability to play in a variety of positions, stating that he enjoys the learning that accompanies a new role.

Kenedy has been one of the brighter spots for Chelsea FC this season. The Brazilian has been exposed to first-team football and has excelled, proving that he certainly does have the potential to become a leading Premier League star.

The youngster has featured in a variety of positions. He has played up the field and further down, inside and out, on top and und- shut up Aj. Basically, interim boss Guus Hiddink has deployed him in several roles. However, the Brazilian has relished the learning opportunity that comes with this enforced versatility.

"Playing different roles is also one of the important learning steps for me here and the best way to learn about those roles and add new bits to my game is by playing in those positions. – via"

Kenedy has impressed all over the pitch for the Blues. Fans have seen him take up a spot on the wing as well one in the full-back position. Originally a winger, he has done his best work in that slot, but his performances in the more unnatural defensive position have better caught the eye.

Given his attacking intentions, Kenedy has provided an extra threat from the deeper role while his defensive work has encouraged as well. Some players may have been irritated by being forced to play out of position, but the Brazilian has embraced it.

As attention turns to the summer transfer window and next season, young talent will be evaluated to deem their worthiness. If the Blues heed advice and endeavour to utilise their youngsters more, Kenedy should feature prominently throughout the rest of this campaign and into the next one.
