His attachment to Rennes
“For six years in Rennes, it’s true that I’ve all the time had a particular relationship with the supporters, with the town, with the membership … It was constructed naturally, with out forcing. It has been six distinctive years, past the soccer side. For a soccer participant I feel it’s also essential to get to know the town, to study to reside within the metropolis that you simply defend. Don't simply be a soccer participant, go to coaching then go residence, shut the blinds and play the console all day. It’s not my conception of life. It’s true that in Rennes I made lots of mates and that you could possibly meet me late at night time after a match, I by no means hid it. You can meet me on the town to go for a stroll, to drink a beer or glowing water throughout the day (laughs)! After I obtained the tribute on my departure, I advised myself that it was an excessive amount of for me. However I feel that within the stadium, many met me or crossed an acquaintance or chatted with me at one level. And it could have been extra that in the end that made me have this tribute, greater than the sector, I don't know … nevertheless it's true that I had a closeness with the individuals who was fabulous. What nonetheless explains my sturdy attachment to Rennes and to Brittany at the moment is the home which is the place I’m good, the place I’m comfortable. “
Problem chopping the twine
“_For me, at one level, it was additionally essential to drop out of Stade Rennais (when it arrived in Bordeaux, editor's observe), and to observe much less, merely because_at the moment I’ve defended the colours of the Girondins for 2 and a half years and it was essential after some time to chop the twine. I wanted it. It's by no means apparent, after which integrations, diversifications take roughly time relying on folks. I defend the colours of Bordeaux with as a lot power as I defended these of Rennes. After what I’ve identified in Rennes in six years might correspond to what some might have identified in fifteen years in a membership. It was sturdy, it was highly effective and it was honest. However in fact I maintain an in depth eye on Rennes, even when the higher it’s, the less mates or acquaintances there are within the group.”
Rennes' victory within the Coupe de France
“I couldn't watch it. As a result of we had so many disappointments in key moments, within the finals or the semi-final of Quevilly on the time … It marked my technology and even that of earlier than. I mentioned in an interview in 2017 (see under) to Christophe Penven of TV Rennes that my remorse was to not have gained a title with Rennes, however the place I additionally say that the long run is comfortable for this membership and that I consider it would win a trophy. It’s the proper reward for a job. We're going to speak about current years, nevertheless it's a long-standing job. As a result of in Rennes there are lots of people who handed by and who did a outstanding job so at the moment it’s paying off. It's superb for individuals who reside it, however there are folks, whether or not presidents, coaches, gamers, staff who participated on this. Rennes has all the time been a really critical membership, which has labored very effectively.“
