The arrival of Baba Rahman at Stamford Bridge might be a delightful news for the Chelsea fans in he wake of a disappointing end to their 3-0 faceoff with the former Premier League champions Manchester City.
The London-based outfit announced the signing of the Ghanian international soon after the defeat at the hands of the Citizens.
The 21-year-old has been touted as one of the most important signing at the Blues dugout. After letting Filipe Luis go to his former club Athletico Madrid, the choice at the defense had been slim. The addition of the youngster to the squad has been refreshing.
“It’s important because he’s a left-back and he can compete with Azpilicueta,” Chelsea tactician Jose Mourinho said. “At the same time, Azpi can also compete with Ivanovic for the right-back position. This player replaces Filipe Luis in terms of the balance of the squad. Hopefully next week he will be ready.”
