Blackburn Rovers (loan)[edit]

On 28 January 2014, Dabo signed for Blackburn Rovers who plays in Championship on loan with an option of a permanent deal. Manager Gary Bowyer said, "He's a positive lad, both on and off the pitch and he brings a different dimension to what we have already got in midfield. He can run forward, he can attack the space very well, he can receive the ball under pressure and we are hoping that he settles in quickly and that he'll be someone that can excite the fans."[6] He was an unused substitute in a 2-0 win against Blackpool.[7] He, then played full 90 minutes for Blackburn Rovers U21 against Tottenham U21.[8]

Dabi was born in France to a Burkinabé father and a Malian mother.[9] He represented the France national under-21 football team once, in a friendly in 2013.[10] He was called up to the Burkina Faso national football team,[11] and the Mali national football team in 2016.[12]
