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.
