Jose Mourinho considers Rahman’s signing as extremely important and relevant to the club.
Baba Rahman has signed for Chelsea from Augsburg for an amount of around £20m. The Ghana left- back is considered as Filipe Luis successor at Stamford Bridge.
The Special One does not hide his satisfaction with the finalization of the transfer. The Portuguese coach hopes, that Rahman will be ready to play as soon as it is only possible.
Mourinho said :
“It’s important because he’s a left-back and he can compete with Azpilicueta,”
“At the same time, Azpi can also compete with Ivanovic for the right-back position.”
“This player replaces Filipe Luis in terms of the balance of the squad.”
“Hopefully next week he will be ready.”
