Ghana left-back, Baba Rahman, says he going back to Schalke was a choice that was important to his career.

Rahman was moved on to Schalke on Monday from Chelsea in an 18-month loan and he is expected to complete his recovery from a knee injury and get to feature regularly for the German club.

He began training on Wednesday in his second loan spell with the club and he was captured by the club’s official English Twitter handle.

His first time with the Royal Blues yielded 23 appearances and 1 goal before he damaged knee ligaments on international duty with Ghana during the 2017 AFCON tournament.

He spoke of his happiness at being back in very familiar settings.

“I am delighted to be here again. I think coming back is the best decision I could have made. I am happy. The club has a lot of faith in me and that made my decision a simple one.

The team has been great with me and I want to return the favour.

I am looking forward to continuing my journey and potentially playing in the Champions League next season.I will give everything to achieve that aim.”

It is unclear when Baba Rahman will feature for Schalke but the team will face Bremen, Wolfsburg, Bayern Munich, Hoffenheim and Leverkusen in their next five matches.

Expectations are that he will get some minutes in those matches.
