Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Ghana defender, Baba Abdul-Rahman, has sent Chelsea fans over the moon with a superb assist in their 2-1 pre-season win over Bournemouth on Tuesday, July, 27.
Champions league winners Chelsea came from behind to draw level in the 72nd minute, thanks to Rahman's brilliance.
With a goal down, Rahman who was a second half substitute, delivered a peach cross to Armando Broja who had the simple task of scoring.
Rahman has featured in all of the Blues' pre-season games so far and also assisted in their first game, a 6-1 win over Peterborough United.
Rahman is hoping to secure a spot and run in the Chelsea squad after spells away from the club on loan. In January, he joined Greek side POAK Thessaloniki and helped them win the Greek Cup.
