David Luiz takes to social media to wish Kenedy a happy 21st birthday at Chelsea's training ground
David Luiz was all smiles as he posed for a picture at Cobham with Kenedy after Chelsea training on Wednesday.
Kenedy celebrated his 21st birthday on Wednesday and it wasn’t long before a host of his Chelsea team-mates took to social media to send him their best wishes.
David Luiz posed for a picture with the Brazilian and posted the snap on Instagram, writing the caption: “Congratulations! God bless you! Kenedaaaaaaaaaaaa! Hahaha @kenedy #happybdaybro”
It has been a frustrating season for Kenedy thus far under new boss Antonio Conte at Chelsea.
The 21-year-old has only played 16 minutes of Premier League action so far this season and has been limited to a brief substitute appearance in the FA Cup in his only other outing.
But it is hard to make a case for Kenedy breaking into the starting line-up at Stamford Bridge given Chelsea’s fantastic form in the Premier League.
The Blues are currently flying high at the top of the Premier League table and are nine points clear of second-placed Tottenham heading into Sunday’s trip to Burnley.
