• FA has written to Chelsea asking for Brazilian’s observations
• Kenedy has also been fined for ‘uneducated’ comments
Kenedy has been sent home in disgrace from Chelsea’s pre-season tour and the Football Association is now seeking the Brazilian’s observations on the derogatory social media posts which have sparked such outrage in China.
The young wing-back, who has since attempted to apologise for the Instagram posts, left the squad in Singapore before the 3-2 friendly defeat by Bayern Munich on Tuesday as Chelsea attempt to defuse the tension generated by Kenedy’s comments. The club had earlier issued their own apology for the posts which, they conceded, had caused “great offence and hurt the feelings of the people of China”.
