Schalke 04 defender Baba Rahman has admitted that not being 100% fit ruled him out of the Black Stars squad to face Kenya.

Baba Rahman was not part of the Black Stars team that lost to Kenya 1-0 in Nairobi in the African Cup of Nations qualifier on 8, September, 2018.

The 24-year-old got injured during the 2017 AFCON in January and made his return this year in May when he came on as a substitute in Schalke's final league game of last season.

"I just wanted to give myself enough time to get fully fit again.

"Additionally, there were some problems between the Ghanaian FA and the government which have now been solved.
