Local training camp Football Scuola had a visit from a Premier League footballer recently, as Chelsea winger Kenedy dropped in on a training session.

The 21-year-old Brazilian turned up at the West Ham Foundation Pitch in Beckton and signed autographs and took pictures.

Kenedy also gave some of the footballers advice on making it in the professional game and was happy to chat with the locals.

Football Scuola is a training camp run by a Premier League scout alongside former Serie A coaches.

The camp doesn’t only focus on player’s technical and tactical game, but also looks into the physical ability of attendees and is a selective programme for u12s-u20s.

Kenedy, who moved to Chelsea in the summer of 2015 from Brazilian club Fluminense, is not set to be the last high-profile footballer to visit the local camp with another due to come down soon.
