Robert Kenedy on why he joined Chelsea and his style of football


New Chelsea striker Robert Kenedy says he decided to join Chelsea because the Blues are one of the "biggest clubs" in European football.

The 19-year-old was officially announced as a Chelsea player last week after he completed his move from Fluminense.

He was part of Jose Mourinho's squad on their pre-season tour to North America and made his debut against Barcelona.

"I'm very excited and delighted to be part of one of the biggest clubs in European football," Kenedy told the club's official website.

"I'm extremely happy with the way everybody at the club has welcomed me.

"It [pre-season with the Blues] was a great experience for a young player like myself to be able to play against one of the best teams in the world.

"I was very happy with my performance and pleased with the way in which my team-mates did everything they could to help me in the game.

"I started out playing football in my hometown as a kid and then went to Rio De Janeiro where I played for Vasco da Gama.

"After that I joined Atletico Mineiro before moving to Fluminense, a club which is very well known for their academy, not just in Brazil but worldwide.

"They produce a lot of talented players. I managed to accomplish my objective there, which was to become a professional, and I played at Fluminense until I completed the move to Chelsea.

"I'm an attacker, I like to play on the right-hand side and I'm a player that works a lot for the team. I always try to play with the best interests of the team at heart."
