Now I will return with Chelsea in a completely different capacity. Rennes, I am very happy about that. For Rennes, participating in the Champions League will also be very special because it is the first time in their team history that they have the opportunity to play in the Champions League."
"Rennes has always been very ambitious. They hope to bridge the gap with Paris and Lyon. They have finally achieved this. I believe they will look forward to playing Chelsea because we are a strong team that has achieved a lot of success. team."
"We just bought Mendy from them recently, but the way of communicating when buying and selling players is completely different. I look forward to playing against Rennes, it will be a great experience."
"We need to respect every opponent in the group. Although we and Sevilla are undoubtedly the favorites on paper, everything has to be expressed on the court."
