Ghanaian duo Baba Rahman and Bernard Tekpetey have begun pre-season with German Bundesliga side Schalke 04 in China.

The German side are in Asia for preseason after finishing as runners-up in the Bundesliga last season. Rahman rejoined Schalke in February following his return from a lengthy lay-off with Tekpetey returning to the club from loan.

Schalke will play English Premier League Southampton.

The Ghanaian duo started preparations for the upcoming season with other teammates who are inactive because their countries did not qualify for the World Cup.
