Dalbert returned to Ligue 1 on loan and joined Rennes. In an interview, he expressed his opinion on joining.
Dalbert said: "I knew about Rennes when I played for Nice. I watched some Rennes games before joining."
"Ligue 1 is an attractive league. I like the appreciation from the top of the club. Everything is good here, the club, the infrastructure and the city. I feel good here."
"When I was on vacation in Brazil, I trained myself, and then I prepared with Inter Milan. I was ready to help. I encountered some difficulties when I was playing for Inter. Serie A is very tactical. Second I played better in Florence in the year and I also have a better understanding of Italian football. Florence’s defense system is different from Rennes, but I can adapt to the new system."
