Robert Kenedy on going from Playstation to real life football at Chelsea


Chelsea striker Robert Kenedy says he is delighted to be training alongside players he only saw in a video game.

The 19-year-old joins other Brazilians Oscar, Willian and Ramires at Stamford Bridge, three players who the youngster will look up to in his first season at the club.

He joined from Fluminense for an undisclosed fee last week, becoming the second striker signing of the summer after the arrival of Falcao from Monaco.

"No I didn't [know any of the Brazilians before joining], I only knew them from playing as them on my Playstation [laughs]," he told Chelsea's official website.

"I used to play as them on my game and now I'm running and working with them every day, so it makes me really happy.

"[But] with all of the Brazilians being here it's a big help for me because they talk to me a lot and tell me what the manager wants and how to train.

"It's not only on the pitch, but off the pitch and within the club that they've been very helpful.

"The [pre-season] tour was a brilliant experience for me, very enjoyable. It gave me an opportunity to meet the players and, as far as the training goes, it was very different.

"The things we do in training here I've never done before and you don't even see some of the drills in Brazil. I need to focus, keep learning and take something new from each session every day."
