Chelsea send Kenedy home after negative China comments

Kenedy has returned to the UK and will play no further part in Chelsea’s pre-season tour.
The club have taken action to send him back to England after the negative reaction in China to his offensive social media posts.

The Blues issued a public apology on Monday after the Brazilian made negative comments about the country on his Instagram account.

The 21-year-old posted two images that attracted criticism and jeering from Chelsea’s Chinese supporters during Saturday’s 3-0 win over Arsenal in Beijing.

Kenedy has since apologised and Chelsea followed suit, confirming the Brazilian has been disciplined for his actions.

Kenedy made just two appearances for Chelsea last season after returning from a spell on loan at Watford, where he made only one appearance, during the first half of the Premier League season.
