Ola Toivonen aims to fix Rennes position

Rennes striker Ola Toivonen reveals that he came to the club in order to help the French side fix their position in the Ligue 1 table.

Rennes striker Ola Toivonen has revealed that he came to the club in order to help the French side fix their position in the Ligue 1 table.

The 27-year-old Swedish frontman joined from PSV Eindhoven in January and has since helped Rennes fight to stave off relegation.

"Before I signed here I saw the table and how they were in the league and so I said to myself 'ok, let's go there and try to fix the situation'," Toivonen said in an interview with broadcaster BeIN Sport.

"I know I'm a good player, I come from a good team, I played a lot of big games during my career, so the biggest challenge was to come in to a new team after being in a team like PSV for five years."

Rennes are currently sitting in 12th position in the top flight of French football.
