Jonjoe Kenny gives away penalty as Schalke 04 are punished by Robert Lewandowski


Jonjoe Kenny gives away penalty as Schalke 04 are punished by Robert Lewandowski

Everton’s loanee was featuring in the 3-0 loss to Bayern Munich.

This summer saw Everton send Jonjoe Kenny out on loan to Schalke 04 in a deal that could be made permanent next summer, according to the Daily Mail. 

It was a move that divided opinion among some Everton fans. Many feel the England under-21 defender has a potentially bright future. Others, on the other hand, have failed to be convinced by his performances when given a chance at Goodison Park. 

He impressed on his debut for Schalke last week against Borussia Monchengladbach but had a far bigger challenge on his hands this weekend.

Unfortunately for Kenny, it was a mistake from him that saw Bayern take the initiative in a 3-0 win.


He clumsily bundles over Kingsley Coman in the box to allow Robert Lewandowski to score the resulting penalty for 1-0. The Pole went on to add to more and complete a hat-trick as well as a comfortable win. 

However, this mistake did not accurately portray Kenny’s display. The Everton talent did a fantastic job nullifying the threat of Coman for most of the match and was unfortunate to lose his footing at an inopportune time and give away what proved to be a crucial spot-kick. 

But his overall performance will again have Schalke fans excited about the prospect of having the Everton man on board.
