In 2022, Dibassy started 26 games, either at center back or at left back until he suffered a ruptured quadriceps tendon in his right leg in a match against the Houston Dynamo in late August and missed the remainder of the 2022 season. 

The defender began his career at Olympique Noisy-le-Sec before joining Bergerac in 2010. In his career, Dibassy has played with Stade Montois, CS Sedan, and Les Licornes where he made more than 130 appearances, tallying nine goals.
