Ghana international Abdul Rahman Baba has revealed that Ghanaian-born former German international Gerald Asamoah helped him to adjust to life in the European country when he first moved there in 2012.
The Augsburg left-back emphasised that he could not have made it both on and off the field in Germany if his one-time team mate at Greuther had not been by his side.
Baba played one season at Greuther Furth with Asamoah before the later signed for Schalke in 2013.
‘The fact that the fans come to me is a morale booster as it urges me on to continue with my good work as people are watching me’
‘It will have been very difficult for me without Gerald Asamoah by my side when I signed for Greuther Furth. He helped me a lot and guided me on daily basis in everything both on and off the field. He also served as my interpreter’ Baba told Footballmadeinghana.com
‘It has been good for me, I can say this ended season has been my very best since I came to Germany, I played 31 league games which was great’.
Baba further revealed that though he is like a poster boy in Augsburg, he is managing the fame well so that it does not conflict with his performance.
‘I always feel excited when I go out and the fans meet me for interaction as well as ask me for autographs and pictures. Our communications team at Augsburg teach us a lot on how to correspond with the supporters’
The 20-year-old was voted among the best three left backs in the German Bundesliga for the 2015/2016 by Bundesliga.de alongside Wolfsburg’s Ricardo Rodriguez and Bayer Munich’s Juan Bernat.
