Jose Mourinho: Why I signed left-back Baba Rahman from Augsburg


Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says new signing Baba Rahman will add healthy competition in the defensive department.

As confirmed at the start of the month, the Portuguese signed a new left-back to fill the void left by Filipe Luis.

According to the player's former club Augsburg, the fee of the transfer will remain undisclosed.

"It's important because he's a left-back and he can compete with [Cesar] Azpilicueta," Mourinho said.

"At the same time, Azpi can also compete with Ivanovic for the right-back position.

"This player replaces Filipe Luis in terms of the balance of the squad. Hopefully next week he will be ready."
