Chelsea defender Baba Rahman has taken a dig at the Chelsea fans. Hailing the Schalke fans he said, “Chelsea are a huge club who have already won the Champions League.”
“Of course the Blues have great support too, but Schalke is still something else.”
The defender is right now having his second spell at the Bundesliga with FC Schalke. He had previously played for Augsburg on loan last season.
He further added, “I don’t have any figures at hand, but just my feeling tells me that more Schalke fans travel to away games. For me, Schalke are one of the absolute top clubs in the Bundesliga.”
The defender has also praised the Augsburg fans. “While the Augsburg fans were amazing, I’ve got to say that I’ve never experienced such enthusiasm as there is here in Gelsenkirchen.”
According to the defender, Bundesliga is far more technically superior than the Premier League, “I think the football in the Premier League is more robust and physical than in the Bundesliga where, on the other hand, a more refined game is played.
“The old cliché that they only play a long-ball game in England isn’t true anymore, and there are great footballers and coaches in both leagues, but I’d say the Bundesliga is tactically more sophisticated than the Premier League.”
