Not a fair comparison . Asm is a victim of Bruce but Kenedy essentially downed tools here. He was having personal problems and the club allowed him plenty of leeway when it came to training.
You've just jogged my memory regarding some family issues and you could well be right that it's an unfair comparison
My real recollection is that he arrived in the January and played during a spell where Benitez released the shackles and Kenedy was allowed a lot of freedom
The start of the next season saw the usual cautious approach from Benitez and there were certain games where the midfield barely crossed halfway
I seem to remember him being played at wing back at times which didn't end well
He hasn't gone on to great things so he could just have been a one season wonder but whatever else was going on I still maintain that Benitez shackled creative football and Kenedy was a victim of natural talent being restricted by over defensive tactics
