Chelsea Apologize For Kennedy’s Comments

Chelsea have “solemnly and sincerely” apologized after Brazilian Kenedy posted offensive social media comments before a pre-season match in China.

Fans accused the 21-year-old of xenophobia and racism over comments made in Instagram posts before Saturday’s 3-0 win over Arsenal.

“We sincerely apologise for the hurt caused to our Chinese fans as well as Chinese people,” a statement read.

Kenedy, who was booed by fans at the game, also later apologized.

Writing on social media, Kenedy said he was sorry if “someone was sad because I used an expression”. He added it was “no racism, just an expression”.
