Kenedy is on loan at Granada from Chelsea and has a big game tonight against Manchester United in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final tie.
The Brazilian has been on loan at several clubs over the last few years as he continued to struggle to get a look in at Chelsea following Jose Mourinho’s departure in 2015.
And he admitted that he felt the most at home during his loan stint at Newcastle in 2018.
He stressed that there was a warmth he felt from the Newcastle fans when he played at St. James’ Park and he thoroughly enjoyed the experience there.
He lavished praise on the Magpies fans and admits that he feels privileged to have the experience of playing in front of a packed St. James’ Park.
“I felt at home there”, the Brazilian told The Athletic.
“I can still remember my first game at St James’ Park. It was spectacular. We only drew [1-1 against Burnley], but it was a great game.
“I could feel the warmth of the fans in the stadium.
“My friend was watching from the stands, and when I spoke to him after the match he said that he had felt the same thing.
“Those first few months were great. It was a brilliant end to the season.
“The Newcastle supporters are amazing, so fanatic. I’m happy to have experienced that. It was the best.”
Kenedy rejoined Newcastle on another loan for the 2018/19 season and made a total of 41 appearances for the club.
