Conte wants Chelsea to be defensive, I'm too attacking - Schalke loanee Rahman

Chelsea outcast Baba Rahman has revealed that he didn't fit into manager Antonio Conte's plans because he was too attack-minded for the Italian's defensive style.

The 22-year-old Ghanaian, who made just 23 appearances for the Blues last season, has joined Bundesliga side Schalke 04 on a season-long loan move.

"Chelsea manager Antonio Conte told me that he wants his team to be very defensive, but I am a rather offensive full back," Rahman told Ruhr Nachrichten.

"So I would have had very little playing time. Conte advised me to leave on loan. We will see what happens after this season."
