On Sunday, Kenedy posted an emotional message on his Instagram account.
The player thanking everybody at Newcastle United and declared ‘I will never forget it.’
That statement (read it below) not sounding like there was any chance of him being at Newcastle next season.
Then today, an interview has been published with the left sided player.
However, the message is hardly any more positive.
Kenedy does say ‘Maybe one day I will be back’ but it isn’t exactly ‘see you in August’.
With Mike Ashley seemingly pushing Rafa Benitez towards the door and the club trying to crush fans hopes of ambition in the transfer window this summer, we really are hoping for the best but fearing the worst.
Kenedy speaking to official club site:
“I was glad to come here to Newcastle, one of the biggest clubs in England, and I really appreciated the chance to play.
“I’d like to thank Rafa Benítez because he trusted in me.
“I really enjoyed my time here – it was very good.
“All the players, all the staff, they made me feel at home. I felt good.
“I gained confidence from the amazing support and I really enjoyed it.
“Maybe one day I will be back.
“The first game – my debut – was really, really good because I didn’t expect something like this.
“And the game against Leicester was amazing because I’d never seen support like that.
“The supporters were really amazing.
“I really appreciate that because I didn’t expect anything like this.
“The fans were something different.
“I felt honoured to be here; it was something really special and I’m a fan of Newcastle’s fans.”
Kenedy via his Instagram account – Sunday 13 May:
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Newcastle United.
“Thank you to all the players, every single person of the great staff.
“The coach Rafa Benitez who trusted me and gave me chance to play for this great club, which I very much enjoyed.
“And of course to all the fans for the magnificent support.
“It was an amazing chapter in my life and I will never forget it.
“Howay the Toon.”
