Ghanaian defender Baba Abdul Rahman feels vindicated by his decision to remain with Greuther Furth despite their relegation from the German top flight at the end of last season.

The 19-year-old refused to leave the Cloverleaves despite interest from other top European clubs following the side’s relegation last term.

Rather, the left-back decided to remain at the Trolli Arena in Bundesliga II mainly due to the guarantee of regular first team action.

Greuther Furth have gone on to have a fabulous season where they are currently second and in the automatic qualification spot to the German top flight at the start of the second half of the season.

And Baba Rahman feels elated by his decision to stay and help the side win back promotion into Bundesliga.

“I am quite happy because we are currently second in the league but we still have 15 games to play so we’ll keep fighting,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.

“For a young player I am happy to keep getting the chance to play and it is good I stayed because the team is playing well and looking good to return to Bundesliga.”

Greuther Furth are just four points behind leaders Koln as the commencement of the second round draws closer.

The Cloverleaves will resume their campaign on February 8 when they travel to face Kaiserslautern.

    I’ll opt for Baba rahman ahead of Afful, , the bundesliga two is far competitive than the Tunisia league. I don’t if Afful can even secure a club in the said league. Players selection has been one of problem with Akwasi Appiah. Talking of Afful, kissi boateng, clottey etc. There were much better players ahead of them but as usual, he prefers kissi and afful ahead of tried and tested play like David addy who has been playing regular club football since his move from randers to benifica

    • Ken says:

      David Addy not playing for Benfica.

    • John says:

      Did you watch Baba Rahman very well during the U20 youth tournament in Turkey?Can you say technically and experience wise he is better than Afful?He is talented all right but I don’t think he is ahead of Afful,he lacks discipline when it comes to defending.The quality of the league each one ply his trade in for me is irrelevant just allow Kwasi Appiah to do his job.

  2. Viviparous says:

    David Addy plays for Vitoria Guimaraes, they are currently 5th on the portuguese top flight. He has been a regular first choice since his move to the club last season, even won the Taca portugal with them, beat Benfica 2-1in the finals.
