Baba Rahman explains Chelsea exit

Baba Rahman has revealed that he left Chelsea on loan because he was too attack-minded for new manager Antonio Conte’s liking.

The 22 year old has returned to the Bundesliga for a season long loan spell at FC Schalke having previously plied his trade for FC Augsburg.

“Chelsea manager Antonio Conte told me that he wants his team to be very defensive, but I am a rather offensive full back,” Rahman told Ruhr Nachrichten.

“So I would have had very little playing time. Conte advised me to leave on loan. We will see what happens after this season.”

The Ghanian international made 23 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea last season.
