Kenedy delighted learning from 'great' Newcastle coach Benitez

Newcastle United star Kenedy is delighted to have the opportunity to learn from a 'great' coach such as Rafael Benitez.

The Brazilian winger has already worked with Jose Mourinho at his parent club Chelsea and has compared Newcastle boss with the Portuguese.

He said: "I played at Chelsea with (Jose) Mourinho, he always helped me and showed me what I had to do in training, what he taught me I take as learning with me, and now I'm learning from another great coach, Rafa."

Kenedy is on a season-long loan at St James' Park after spending the second half of last season there as well.
