Abdul Baba Rahman still has hopes of making it at Chelsea.
He hasn’t been able to live up to his £22million price tag after signing from Augsburg in 2015, but he wants to be trusted that he is over his injury issues.
Rahman, now on-loan with Reading, hopes his World Cup appearances help, he told the London Evening Standard: “My dream is to get back to playing elite football at the top, to compete against the best players in the world.
“I believe in myself and my qualities. I feel 100 per cent. The World Cup is meant for some of the best players. They show you can compete against the best.”
“I’ve got one year more with Chelsea. My dream is, if not getting back to Chelsea, to move to a top league.”
That is not to say that he is not grateful for his chance at Reading.
He adds: “I love Reading. I was here last season and although we are in a difficult situation, I want to just help Reading and give them back the love that they’ve shown me.”
