Ghana's No. 1

Chelsea defender Baba Rahman reunites with former coach Markus Weinzierl at Schalke

Ghana defender Abdul Baba Rahman has reunited with former coach Markus Weinzierl at Schalke after joining the club on loan from Chelsea.

The 22-year-old has made the switch to the Veltins on a season-long loan after failing to impress new Chelsea manager Antonio Conte.

The Ghana international joined in a deal worth up to £21.7million from Augsburg last August, but started only 11 matches.

Antonio Conte rates the Ghana left-back, but feels he would develop quicker playing regularly for Schalke in the Bundesliga.

It's an all-familiar territory for the Black Stars left-back as he reunites with former Augsburg coach Markus Weinzierl.

Rahman excelled heavily under the German during his spell at the club, before making the big money move to England.
