“I almost feel like I’m levitating” – Chelsea loanee reveals why he wears weird socks

Kenedy of Chelsea

Chelsea star Kenedy has revealed why he plays with short length socks. The Brazilian is on loan at Newcastle and was speaking to FourFourTwo (h/t Football.london), claiming the socks were more comfortable.

“I like them! It’s as if I’m wearing normal socks, you know?

“They make me feel lighter and are so comfortable. On the pitch, I almost feel like I’m levitating.”

The Brazilian added that some of his teammates couldn’t believe that he sports such socks. The 22-year-old further spoke about the fear of injuries and how Rafa Benitez reacts to the socks.

“I do worry about injuries, but I wouldn’t say it’s more dangerous because of my tiny socks.

“Rafa (Benitez) has never said anything about that – he just looks at the socks and laughs.”


Kenedy spent last season on loan with the Magpies and returned for a second stint this time around. The midfielder spoke about his future at Chelsea but claimed he was happy at Tyneside.

“As for the future, I have a contract at Chelsea and it would be nice to get another opportunity there, but for now I prefer to enjoy the moment.

“I’m happy at Newcastle and can only promise to give my best here.”

The Brazilian needs a quality season before he can think of making an impact next season. The 22-year-old isn’t the most consistent player but if he works on this aspect, he might have a future at the Blues.
