Bundesliga More Refined Than EPL – Baba Rahman


Ghana left-back Baba Rahman has run the rule over the German Bundesliga and the English Premier League.

The 22-year-old completed a season-long loan from English side Chelsea to German outfit Schalke 04 last month, and has so far made seven appearances in all competitions for the Royal Blues.

The Tamale-born is not new to the German topflight, having previously represented Augsburg and Greuther Furth in the Bundesliga.

“I think the football in the Premier League is more robust and physical than in the Bundesliga where, on the other hand, a more refined game is played,” Baba told Bundesliga.com.

“The old cliché that they only play a long-ball game in England isn’t true anymore.

“There are great footballers and coaches in both leagues.

“But I’d say the Bundesliga is tactically more sophisticated than the Premier League.”

Baba made 31 league outings in 2014-15 before heading for Chelsea where he made 15 topflight appearances
