Chelsea finally bid goodbye to star defender

Timothy Aiyeku



Abdul Baba Rahman

English Premier League side Chelsea have finally parted ways with star defender Abdul Baba Rahman on a temporal basis as he goes to sign a loan deal with French outfit Stade Reims.

Abdul Baba Rahman has been a part of the Chelsea first team but has been unable to win the competition to break in for a starting role.

Since joining the West London side in 2015 for a fee of about £14 million, Abdul Baba Rahman has not been able to make a name for himself as he continues to go down the pecking order.

Under former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, Abdul Baba Rahman had 23 appearances under his belt but that never happened under Italian boss Antonio Conte at the Stamford Bridge.

Abdul Baba Rahman spent most time away on loan during the reign of the former Italian boss and that is still unchanged under the current boss Maurizio Sarri.

The former Napoli boss has not got Abdul Baba Rahman in his plan which is why he has handed him the opportunity t secure playing time and have a first team football elsewhere.

It is therefore not clear if Abdul Baba Rahman will return as a Blues player in the future or not.
