‘I Try To Help Him’ Luiz Opens Up On Kenedy Friendship
Chelsea defender David Luiz has opened up on his friendship with fellow Brazilian Kenedy. Kenedy is currently doing very well on loan at Newcastle, but Luiz remains in regular contact with the ex-Fluminense player.
The pair are opening a restaurant together in London and Luiz told the Daily Mail that he tries to act as something of a mentor for his compatriot, “I try to help him. He was always with Diego Costa but, since he left, I have taken on that role of looking out for him.
“You see his tattoos and the ripped jeans and you think he is a crazy boy, but he is shy. His past was not easy, he is from the street. But he is a great boy with a big heart.
‘I try to watch all of Newcastle’s games and he calls me to ask about his performance. But he should not worry, he has been amazing. I am cheering all the goals.”
