1998 World Cup winner with France, Marcel Desailly has expressed confidence in the qualities of Baba Abdul Rahman as he states that the Black Stars defender has what it takes to play in the first team of Chelsea.
Having joined the English Premier League outfit in 2015 from German Bundesliga side Augsburg, Baba Rahman has struggled to make a case for himself in the Blues first team as he is continually sent out on loan.
In an interview with Footballmadeinghana TV, Marcel Desailly urged the Black Stars asset to continue working hard and not give up.
“Baba Rahman should not give up. I think he has the level of being Chelsea’s first-choice left-back. He should try more, he went out on loan to the Spanish League this season so he should come back with a better mindset to be able to perform.
“The Premier League is very difficult because of the speed of the game so it’s not easy but he has to cope with it,” he said.
This season, Baba Rahman is playing for RCD Mallorca but injuries have denied him the opportunity of playing in as many matches that he would have wanted.
