Reims boss hails Baba Rahman signing

Baba Rahman has joined Reims on loan Baba Rahman has joined Reims on loan

The General Director of French Ligue 1 side Stade Reims, Mathieu Lacour is confident that Ghana international Abdul Rahman Baba will be the star in his team.

Lacour stressed that getting a player from Chelsea is not easy and Baba has already showed that he is a top player who can be the fulcrum of Reims.

“He can be a top player, have played the biggest competitions and show elegance: this is clearly the case of Abdul Rahman Baba” Lacour told his club’s official website.

“Beyond the impressive pedigree of Baba, I do not even need to mention, I was charmed by his simplicity and willingness to blend quickly into the club,”

“We must also salute the attitude of the Chelsea club which made this loan possible. The deal is win-win for everyone: for us it was to compensate for the injury of Ghislain Konan, for him is to get playing time and a chance to play at the AFCON at the end of the season,” he added.

Baba has previously featured for Dreams FC, Greuther Furth, Augsburg, Chelsea and Schalke.
