Returning to Fluminense, John Kennedy scores and wants to ‘get going’

The center forward sent off for indiscipline left his mark in Fluminense’s 2-0 victory over Sampaio Corrêa

John Kennedy’s star shined again. After all, the Minas Gerais center forward, back on the pitch after a period of absence due to indiscipline, scored the second goal in the Tricolor’s 2-0 victory over Sampaio Corrêa, this Wednesday (22/5) in the Copa do Brasil. And the move was pure opportunism on the part of the 22-year-old athlete, owner of the team’s number 9 shirt.

Kennedy came onto the pitch in the 18th minute of the second half, replacing Keno. And he scored the goal in the 35th minute, taking advantage of a ball that hit the post.

“I am very happy, first of all, to be back and to have scored the goal. I think now is the time to prepare, well, forever. Continue with the streak of consecutive victories. Training to try to place the team first in the table. Libertadores and look for the titles which are our goals.”

The player was sent off on 23 April, along with Alexsander, Arthur and Kauã Elias. Moreover, the four participated in a party in the hotel where the Italian delegation was gathered for the classic match against Vasco on the 20th. Thus the Fluminense management understood that the players had not respected their concentration in view of the match. Furthermore, Kennedy was late for a training session and, as a result, was the last to receive reinstatement in the group.

John Kennedy emphasizes the joy of his career

In the match against Sampaio Corrêa at the Maracanã, the center forward – at Fluminense since 2016 – received greetings from the fans and said that joy is an important point in his career.

“Joy will never be lacking. I think it is a very strong virtue of mine. Continuing with this joy, everything will be fine.”
