Ghanaian international Abdul Rahman Baba has revealed that he always wanted to be a soccer player when growing up.

The mercurial left-back mentioned that he did not have a particular player he looked up to as a kid since he took delight in watching any good player.

“I was watching all the good players and when I go on the field, I try to emulate their skills. My dream was to be a professional player and I am glad I have achieved that.
