Ghana defender Baba Abdul Rahman has written to fans of German club Schalke O4 for the unflinching support they provided him during his time at the Royal Blues.
The 24-year old joined French side Stade Reims on loan from Chelsea till the end of the season after ending his stay in Germany with Schalke in January.
Baba Rahman was on a second loan spell with the Royal Blues, but ended his 18 month stay abruptly following lack of play time.
Despite his difficult second spell in Germany, the left back posted a heartwarming message on Social Media to the club and it's fans for the amazing time with the club.
"Hello SCHALKE fans,
I want to say a very big thank you to Schalke O4 for the time they gave me during an incredibly difficult period of career.
It's been an honor to have worn the colors of our GREAT club. I've learned a lot both on and off the field that wants to go beyond football. Me and my family are grateful.
I wish the club, the fans, the players, the medical team and the technical team, but the best for the remaining season.
During Rahman's second loan stint at the club, he played only four games for Schalke O4.
