Baba Rahman: Augsburg defender rated 6th best in German Bundesliga

Augsburg Ghanaian defender Abdul Baba Rahman has been ranked as the sixth best player in the Germany Bundesliga midway through the season.

Highly-rated European football website, whoscored.com, ranked the 22-year-old above Bayern Munich midfielder Xabi Alonso as well as Wolfsburg’s Ricardo Rodriguez.

Dutch star Arjen Robben lead the rankings and closely been followed by Kevin De Bruyne, Karim Bellarabi, Marco Reus and Nando in that order.

Rahman has simply been scintillating since he joined Augsburg from German second-tier side Greuth Furth.

He has seen his stock risen within a short time as he continues to gain inches in the media for his sweltering performances.

The former Kotoko left-back played an influential role for the Black Stars as they secured qualification to the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea.
