In Chelsea’s final game of the season, against Watford, Thomas Tuchel offered Kenedy a rare chance.
The Brazilian was recalled from Flamengo on a season-long loan to cover for the injured Ben Chilwell. Thomas Tuchel, on the other hand, persisted with Marcos Alonso, preferring Malang Sarr at times.
Chelsea supporters rushed to social media after Kenedy’s excellent performance against Watford, questioning why he was never given an opportunity in the team.
“The guy is fantastic,” one admirer said of the Brazilian’s performance.
“Kenedy is balling!” said another.
“Where has Kenedy been all this time?” someone else wondered. We’ve kept the Roberto Carlo regen hidden all along. “This man is incredible.”
“He is really excellent offensively, I don’t know why Tuchel doesn’t play him,” said another.
