Julien Stéphan (Rennes coach, RMC Sport) : “We are delighted because we are going to find Édouard Mendy. We said to ourselves by saying goodbye that we would meet again very quickly. Then there is Sevilla FC who are the winner of the Europa League and Krasnodar who is more used to the Europa League. The objective is simple, it is to gain experience. I believe that we were the penultimate coefficient. The objective is to take as many points as possible , play with a lot of bravery. We have no certainties but confidence. We have little experience. In the workforce we have players who will discover this competition, who are both very ambitious and have a lot of motivation. We will play it with all our strength, all our energy and the desire to give emotions to the people who will follow us “.

Damien Da Silva (Rennes defender, RMC Sport) : “We were excited before the draw, we are even more excited afterwards. We are impatient to discover this competition. We already know that we are going to have a lot of work, we even knew it before. the Champions League, it’s always exciting to face them. One thing is certain: we are very motivated. I am convinced that it will be a truly magical moment for all the players who will be on the pitch. We all dream since we were very young to hear this music so I can’t wait to listen to it. It’s a personal dedication but above all a collective one. It’s an additional level, one more step in a career. I don’t know if we can say that the objective is to get out of this group. We will already gain experience. We have a few days that have already played so we will rely on them. We will do everything to take points and win matches. “

Nicolas Holveck (president of Rennes, the Téléfoot channel) : “When you take part in a competition, it’s to do well, not just to participate. Afterwards, do well … We still shoot Seville, defending Europa League title holder, who narrowly lost in the Supercopa final against Bayern, Chelsea who made the biggest transfer window of this summer, and by far . So two really big pieces. Then there is Krasnodar, which is a very good Russian team and who will be our direct competitor, I think, in this group. But of course we will try to annoy Sevilla and Chelsea “.

Edouard Mendy (Chelsea goalkeeper, Téléfoot channel) : “It’s a lot of emotion but before leaving, having discussed with several players, the coach and my goalkeeper coach, it’s as if it was written that I was going to come back to play a match at Roazhon”.
