Ghana defender Baba Rahman is sad to leave Chelsea for the Bundesliga, where he will join up with Schalke on loan for a season.
Rahman believes that his style is too attacking for Italian manager Antonio Conte.
“Chelsea manager Antonio Conte told me that he wants his team to be very defensive, but I am a rather offensive full-back,” Rahman told Ruhr Nachrichten.
“So I would have had very little playing time. Conte advised me to leave on loan. We will see what happens after this season.
“I already know Markus Weinzierl from my time at Augsburg and we worked together very well there. He always gave me a lot of confidence. That is one of the reasons why I think Schalke were the best option for me.”
The Ghanaian then had a go at the technical and tactical inferiority of the English Premier League, where he struggled to adapt.
“A lot of players in England are very powerful, whereas in Germany you see some better football,” the 22-year-old added.
“A lot of Premier League teams are still very much playing kick and rush football.”
