Kenney, in his 21st year with the Cubs, has drawn criti cism from fans during that time, particularly when it comes to the team's dealings with the neighboring rooftop owners over the long-awaited renovation of Wrigley Field.

He acknowledged that during the interview, saying, "Thank God it's not a popularity contest" with ownership. He then said chairman Tom Ricketts gave him an extension through 2019.
