Baba Rahman says he has not yet given up hope of making it at Chelsea, despite embarking on a third season on loan with Schalke. The left-back has just started another campaign away from Stamford Bridge with the loan deal he agreed in January not running out until next summer.
The 24-year-old, who has now recovered from the knee injury he sustained while with Schalke last term, has made just 23 first-team appearances for the Blues, of which only 11 have been Premier League starts, since joining from Augsburg in 2015.
It seems like he has plenty of work to do to force his way back into the set up at Chelsea but the Ghana international says he can still envisage a future at the club.
“You can never say where football will guide you to. Maybe I stay for the next 10 years at Schalke but I can also imagine playing for Chelsea again,” he said in the Evening Standard.
“As one of the best clubs in the world, Chelsea gives many players the chance to make their dreams come true and become better footballers.
“The club gives talented players a chance to prove themselves. At Schalke, I am now regularly in front of 60,000 spectators on the pitch, which makes me incredibly good in my development.”
