Home England Championship Baba Rahman: Mourinho reveals reasons for player’s exclusion

Baba Rahman: Mourinho reveals reasons for player’s exclusion


The ex-Augsburg defender will have to wait for his chance, says Jose Mourinho

Rahman has made just two appearances for Chelsea since his move from Germany in the summer.

The Blues currently lie in 16th place in the Premier League after a poor start to the season, including a 3-1 defeat against Southampton at Stamford Bridge.

Mourinho has opted for Cesar Azpilicueta, who can play on either flank, over the Ghana international despite Branislav Ivanovic being a shadow of the player he was last season on the other flank.

“Look, because Baba Rahman arrived in the last day, because he doesn’t know what it is to play in this kind of championship,” Said Mourinho.

“He had no pre-season with us. He needs time to learn, he needs time to adapt.”

Chelsea eyeing Lazio midfielder

Lucas Biglia has recently turned down a new contract at Lazio, alerting Chelsea to make a move for the Argentina international.

The 29-year-old can have a real impact in the heart of the Blues midfield, according to Mourinho.

Biglia is also attracting interest from a host of Europe’s elite clubs including Premier League rivals Manchester United.

A number of Chelsea players have massively underperformed so far this season – Mourinho brought Nemanja Matic off just under half an hour after bringing him on at half-time against Southampton.
