​Newcastle winger Kenedy blames laziness for English hurdle

Newcastle United winger Kenedy is blaming himself for not the learning English language quick enough in order to adjust to the Premier League.

The Brazilian came to England three years ago to join Chelsea and is currently on loan at the Magpies, but is still struggling with the language barrier.

"I don't consider it's hard to learn, I'm lazy, really," Kenedy told Brazilian website UOL.

"Now I'm with a private teacher, trying to evolve. Let's see if it works out."
