Marcel Aubour

Marcel Aubour is one of the best goalkeepers in France’s football history. After becoming professional in Lyon at the beginning of the 1960’s, he played his first matches in Division 1 there in 1962, before being called with the French national team in 1964. With « les Bleus », he played in the 1966 World Cup, under the management of former Rennais Henri Guérin. During this year 1966, he left Lyon – where he won his first title, the 1964 French Cup – for Nice, returning to his region of birth, the Côte d’Azur. During the winter 1969-1970, Aubour the Provençal with his singing accent, arrived in Brittany. While Nice was trying to get rid of him, the « Red and Black » defence was put to the sword in the league, and Gérard Le Fillâtre, the current goalkeeper, conceding goal after goal. In exchange of Aubour’s transfer and a nice little sum, Le Fillâtre was loaned to Nice. The deal would not be regretted by Stade Rennes. Aubour immediately stabilized the Breton defence and was quickly adopted by the public. The next season, he triumphed in the second Coupe de France victory for Rennes. During the semi-final, he made the difference against Marseille, sickening the opposite players during the penalties shoot-out session. In final, Aubour had less work to do, but he couldn’t help making the public laugh, playing petanque with artichokes thrown on the ground. The Provençal finally left Brittany in 1972, but he had found a second home there. He signed with Reims, where he ended his professional career, at the age of 37. He then came back to Saint-Tropez, where he took over his father’s hotel and where he still lives, enjoying his retreat.

Jean-Luc Arribart

Born in Rennes, Jean-Luc Arribart went up the ranks at Stade Rennais all the way up to the first team. During his training, he also won the Gambardella Cup in 1973, one and a half year before the start of his professional career. Versatile, he then evolved equally at midfield or in defence, before settling at the position of centre back. Standing out in first team, Arribart becomes one of the main sports values of a club in the midst of economic turmoil. In 1978, to balance its budget, the Stade Rennais has no other choice but to transfer him, together with Patrick Delamontagne, to the Stade Lavallois. In Mayenne, he confirmed his status of good Division 1 player. And although he dropped to D2 during three years spent in Reims, he later returned to the top flight with Nancy. In 1988, after his final two professional years spent in Orléans then Laval, Arribart put an end to his player's career. He then became a TV consultant, a job in which he became one of the recognized actors. In parallel, between December 1999 and October 2000, he briefly occupied the position of technical director at the RC Lens.

Houssaine Anafal

A Moroccan International, Houssaine Anafal arrived at Stade rennais in 1974. In attack, he played alongside players such as Laurent Pokou or Philippe Redon, but his first season in Brittany ended with a relegation to D2, and only three goals scored. Moving back to the midfield in 1975-1976, he realised a much better season, and contributed widely to the immediate return to the top flight. But Anafal suffers from homesickness, and wants to return to Morocco. In October, 1976, his contract was cancelled and the player returned to the KAC Kénitra, his former club. A year and a half later, he eventually returned to Stade rennais, and realised an excellent 1979-1980 season, scoring no less than twelve goals. Unfortunately, the club failed to clinch promotion in the end of season in play-off, and Anafal would not play for the club any more despite the major role he had on that season. Indeed, his career with Rennes was shattered by a bad meniscus injury. In 1982, he returned to KAC Kénitra for the second time, but he would return to Brittany once again. Today, he is one of the educators at the Stade rennais football school.

In November 1985, a young unknown player from Guadeloupe made a trial at Stade Rennais, recommended by the forward Mario Relmy who saw him playing for l'Étoile de Morne-à-l'Eau. After a successful trial, Jocelyn Angloma received an amateur contract, and started playing with the third team, before quickly joining the reserve team... then the professional squad. Just over 2 months after he arrived, he made his debut with the first team, in the Coupe de France. Not qualified to play in the first division, he would have to wait the month until March to make his debut in the top division. Angloma who played as a midfielder at the time, quickly made a place for himself in the professional team. In 1987, Stade Rennais was relegated in Division 2, but Angloma wanted to continue his progression and joined Lille. In the North, his reputation kept growing and he signed with PSG in 1990. In Paris, he was repositioned as a right back and made his debut with the French national team. One year later, he signed with the French champion Marseille where he became once again an important player. After winning the Champions League with OM, he decided to play overseas, first in Italy then and mainly in Spain. Exemplary for five years with Valence FC, he played as professional until he was 37 years old. Then he returned to Guadeloupe, played for his former team Morne-à-l'Eau and became scout for LOSC.

Born in Congo, Lucien Aubey grew up in the Île-de-France (Greater Paris) region. After a short spell at the Paris FC, he did most of his training in Cannes. In 2001, he was recruited by Toulouse, relegated in National (3rd division) on administrative grounds. In Toulouse, Aubey took part on a continuous accession from 3rd division to 3rd place in Ligue 1. Recruited by Lens in 2007, the strong, very physical defender had a hard time in the North of France, first being hit by a nasty injury before a disappointing loan to Portsmouth (Premier League). Arrived in Rennes to revive his career, Aubey had to accept the status of Super-substitute, behind the unmovable central defence made of Hansson and Mangane. Excluded from Frederic Antonetti’s tactics, he was eventually released from his contract by Rennes in January 2010, and signed a contract with Turkish first division team Sivasspor.
