It’s only been about six months since he joined Chelsea FC, but fullback Baba Rahman has already started to feel frustrated at the lack of action at Stamford Bridge.
The Ghanaian left back who had built up quite a reputation at FC Augsburg in the Bundesliga, took a £14 million switch to Chelsea FC, in a bid to try his luck in one of the most competitive leagues in the world. However, he has so far failed to make much of a mark at the West London club.
In fact, Rahman has not even been able to break into the starting XI too often, getting just nine appearances so far this season, in spite of the Chlesea FC defence playing badly.
“Of course it is frustrating for any footballer to be forced to watch from the stands and I don’t want to experience that much more,” Rahman was quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror. “As a young player, of course, you have to get used to such a big club and a world-class league.”
Former boss Jose Mourinho was reportedly not too impressed with Rahman in training to fully trust him with a start in every match. However, Rahman himself says that he has a lot of respect for the Portuguese manager, and has learnt a lot from him.
“He [Mourinho] always gave me tips on how to improve both defensively and going forward,” said Rahman.
Regular action may not be too far
Branislav Ivanovic has not been in the best of form, and although Chelsea FC have given him a one-year extension, it seems that the big Serbian defender’s age is finally catching up with him. It is unlikely though that Chelsea FC would do away with Ivanovic, as he is also quite useful as a centreback. Instead we could see Cesar Azpilicueta shifted to his more familiar right back position, while Rahman slots into left back, if Ivanovic loses some of his pace to age in the coming season.
