Baba Rahman Is Best Left Back In The World, says Kurt

Executive Chairman of Dreams Football Club, Kurt Okraku says Chelsea left-back, Baba Rahman is the best in his position in the world.

Baba Rahman joined Ghana Premier League giants Asante Kotoko from his childhood club Dreams FC on loan before sealing a move to German second tier side Greuter Furth in the 2012/2013 league season.

A scientilatting performance with Greuter Furth earned him a move to Augsburg, and he helped the club to achieve its highest finish ever – fifth, in their history in the Bundesliga, booking a ticket to the Europa league.

The successful season in the German top-flight gained him attention from a host of European giants, but Chelsea FC snapped him up for a reported fee of £21m last summer.

The Ghanaian international has struggled to nail a starting berth at Stamford Bridge, but on Wednesday February 16, he had his best display in the Blue shirt against Paris Saint Germaine in the champions league round of 16 first leg at Parc des Princess.

And his manager, Kurt Okraku who was impressed but not surprised at his performance against the French champions, says he is the best player at left-back in the world.

“Baba Rahman has always been on top of his game and I’m not surprised at what I saw yesterday (against Paris Saint Germaine),” the bank roller of the Kwaiman-based club told

“I am surprised people are surprised at his performance against the best players in the Lig 1. He has played in the Bundesliga against best teams in world in Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund…in his first game in the Bundesliga, he played against Bayern Munich.

“Baba has grown and he is the best left-back in the world.” Kurt Okraku who was influential in the former Black Satellite defender move to England noted.

Baba Rahman played his first high profile game against Hearts of Oak in Super Two clash when he was signed on loan by Kumasi Asante Kotoko.
