Baba Rahman is intent on making a positive impact at Schalke under the management of Markus Weinzierl.
"I already know him from my time at FC Augsburg. We get along really well," he told Schalke's official website.
"I know that Markus Weinzierl has a lot of confidence in me, which is an important thing for any player.
"I obviously want to play a part with Schalke. My target is to give everything to help the team to be successful.
"I want to help the team and I am looking forward to the atmosphere at my first home game. I know what it's like in the VELTINS-Arena when Schalke play, as I've played there before with both Augsburg and Fürth."
