Ghana left-back Abdul Baba Rahman was on the assist list for Chelsea in their pre-season 2-1 come-back win against AFC Bournemouth on Tuesday night.
The two teams failed to put a ball at the back of the net after the first forty-five minutes.
Back from recess, Emiliano Marcodes shot the home side ahead in the 66th-minute mark of the game but Baba Rahman set up Broja later in the 72nd minute to pull parity for Chelsea.
Broja nicely controlled Baba’s cross from the left-hand side to hit the back of the net.
The blues after getting the equalizer, took control of the game and started pressing for the winner.
They finally got the match winner through Ike Ugbo’s cool finish four minutes later as the game ended 1-2 in favour of Thomas Tuchel’s side.
27-year-old Baba Rahman still has a year left on his Chelsea contract and is hoping to impress Thomas Tuchel who took over from Frank Lampard mid-way last season and going on to make history by leading them to their second Champions League trophy.
The German manager knows Rahman from his high flying days as the best left-back in the Bundesliga with Augsburg and later Schlake 04 before unluckily suffering two major knee injuries that halted his blistering career.
Rahman is enjoying a clean bill of health for the first time in three years and is coming off a brilliant campaign in the Greek league with PAOK where he helped them lift their first Greek Cup in almost a decade.
The Ghanaian internation featured in his side’s 6-1 training ground match win against Peterborough last week.
Rahman has created two goals in two pre-season matches for the Chelsea and hopes his performances earn him a regular role in the upcoming season under Thomas Tuchel.
