Ghana international, Baba Rahman has disclosed that he in the past had a chat with Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi on the possibility of a nationality switch to play for the Black Stars.
The Ghana Football Association (GFA) in the last eight months has held several talks with Callum Hudson-Odoi hoping to get him to switch nationality to ditch the English national team.
Unfortunately, the talks have not been successful with the youngster keen on fighting for a place on the national team of England.
Speaking to Nizaar Kinsella in an interview, Baba Rahman disclosed that he previously talked to Odoi as his Chelsea teammate about playing for Ghana.
“I spoke to him in pre-season and it was just a little chat about it,” said the full-back about Hudson-Odoi’s international dilemma.
“At the moment he was still making up his decision and he wasn’t fully sure of what was going,” Baba Abdul Rahman said.
The Reading FC defender continued, “When I spoke to him it was a nice and friendly conversation.
“I hope he can make it because he’s a good guy because I’ve known him for a long time. His quality also would be a good addition for Ghana.”
While Baba Rahman is going to Qatar with the Ghana national team, Hudson-Odoi will be watching the tournament from home.
