- Story Text: Chelsea held a training session in Singapore on Monday (July 24) for their International Champions Cup pre-season match against Bayern Munich on Tuesday (July 25).
Chelsea's new signing Alvaro Morata, who joined from Real Madrid last week, took part in the training session with coach Antonio Conte saying it was part of his plan for the Spaniard to play at least part of the match against Bayern.
Brazilian Kenedy, whose offensive comments made on social media led to an apology from Chelsea, also said that the midfielder had been disciplined.
The 21-year-old Kenedy, who signed for the Premier League side in August 2015, made the remarks on his Instagram page on Saturday (July 22) ahead of Chelsea's 3-0 friendly win against Arsenal in Beijing.
