Camisa 33 made his first game as a starter and gave the Juventude defense a lot of trouble, as well as scoring a nice goal with Pedro
One of the newly hired by Flamengo still owed a good performance. According to some information, the attacker Kenedy has been prepared to be able to help the team by being in the best of their physical shape. This last Wednesday (13), he had the opportunity to start as a starter for the first time and did not disappoint while he had breath.
The attacker gave a lot of work acting on the right side of the attack of the Flamengo. Despite being left-handed and having performed better whenever he played on the left side, he was incisive and helped to destabilize the line of five players in the defense of Juventude. In a table with the center forward, he received a pass from the letter and scored his first goal with the red-black shirt.
In a press conference granted after the victory over Juventude, the coach Renato Gaucho talked about the performance of the player loaned by Chelsea, from England, and explained the way he has been dealing to give confidence and make Kenedy ready to enter and perform at the level he showed this Wednesday.
“Kenedy surprised me. It’s been a long time since he started a game. I’ve been exchanging ideas with him, I’m releasing him little by little. I was happy for the goal he made too. A nice goal too. Made a good debut starting a match. I knew he couldn’t make it through 90 minutes. I told him he was going to start the second half and when he couldn’t take it anymore I would ask to leave. Our deal was around 15, that’s what he asked,” he said Renato, who completed:
“The key is to talk, exchange ideas. I haven’t played for a long time. Out there, he even worked in other positions. We were very careful because every week he complained of muscle pain. I was putting it in little by little to be able to prepare it. After games, he got a heavy leg. I don’t know if it’s related to Covid. Yesterday I talked to him yesterday, asked if he was confident. He said he was feeling fine, asked to play. I was happy with what he presented, not just with the goal. Fought, fought… Of course it’s not 100% yet, but little by little we’re going around it. It will help us a lot“, finished.
