Just like his compatriots, Alidu Seidu is hoping to achieve success with the French club.

“Stade Rennais is a great club and it's a great privilege for me. I had a great time at Clermont, they gave me everything and welcomed me like a member of the family. I became a man there, and the adventure continues at Rennes and I'm very happy about that.

“I'm a player who doesn't like to lose, I'm a fighter, I give everything for my colleagues and I'm always looking to progress,” Alidu Seidu said in his first interview with the media team of the club.

The defender will start training with his new teammates on Tuesday, January 30.
