And before crossing paths with Stade Rennais in the European Cup, the French striker spoke about Ligue 1 and ruled out a return to the French Championship, he who admitted to having been approached by Stade Rennais recently.
“I have always appreciated Mr. Pinault (François-Henri). We were even neighbors for a time in London, and he even invited me to dinner at his place one day, we got on well with our wives too. There was an interest from Rennes, and it is always a pleasure to have this capital sympathy that I have in France, to be recognized there. But it is not in my plans to return there, in any case, I love Brittany,” he explained in the columns of Ouest-France.
It remains to be seen which option the French international will choose at the end of the season.
