Loaned to Rennes during the 2005 summer, Laszlo Sepsi, a U21 Romanian international, joined his fellow national Laszlo Bölöni at the club. Mostly playing with the Reserve, despite a few appearances with the professional squad, he displayed good technical skills and a resolutely offensive spirit, but also a sometimes hazardous positioning on the pitch. After Bölöni’s departure to AS Monaco, Sepsi wasn’t kept by the club, and went back to his country to play with Gloria Bistriţa, a Romanian first division team. A year and a half later, he was recruited by the prestigious Benfica Lisbon, and received his first call-up to the Romanian national team. However, he had very little chance to play in Portugal and was loaned to Santander, Spain, six months later, where he played 24 games but wasn’t kept in the team. In January 2010, Romanian club Timişoara FC offered 1.5 million euros to Benfica to recruit the player.

Let on the side of the first team for many seasons, Moussa Sow had a rather discrete start to his professional career, only showing glimpses of his talent during three seasons. A rather positive loan experience in Sedan (Ligue 2), in 2007/2008, allowed him to gain some useful playtime and score a few goals, and his return to Rennes was marked by a renewed goal-scoring ability. Often decisive, Moussa Sow was one of the biggest satisfactions of the 2008-2009 season, and the striker was expected to hold a major role in the club’s future. However, he declined the club’s offers for an extension of his contract, and signed a contract for Lille on a free transfer in June 2010.
