Cameroon defender, Baba Rahman has stated he his too attack minded for Conte at Chelsea, as he reveals why he left the club.
The defender joined Chelsea from Augsburg, but is on his way out of the club, on a season long loan at Schalke.
“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.”
Rahman also had his say on the differences between the Premier League and the Bundesliga and was not impressed with the tactics used in England’s top flight.
“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.”
