Patrice Carteron

While he played for Saint-Brieuc, Patrice Carteron drew the attention of the Stade Rennais. By a combination of circumstances, both parts failed to agree and Carteron started his professional career with Laval, then in Division 2. Recruited two years later by Stade Rennais, he became the team’s immovable left defender. Defender with a sense of duty, he played about a hundred matches with the red and black jersey, before he was recruited by the Olympique lyonnais. He continued is progression there during three years, and then he signed at Saint-Étienne in 2000, just before Lyon’s greatest era began. He stayed in the Forez for five years, three in L2 and two in L1. Ending his player career at AS Cannes, he started his new life there, first as recruiter and then as manager of the first team. In june 2009, he became the coach of Dijon, in L2. In June 2011, he gained promotion to Ligue 1 with Dijon.

Petr Čech

After his debut in the Czech championship aged only 17, Petr Čech was revealed during the U-23 European Championship in 2002. As the final went to penalty shoot outs, the tall goalkeeper destroyed all the French hopes to offer the victory to his country. Čech obviously received the attention of many scouts, and decided to continue his career in France, where Stade Rennais was the ideal step. Transferred for 5 million, the goalkeeper would bring in much more to Stade Rennais two years later when Chelsea came to recruit him. An immovable wall behind Rennes’ defence he contributed actively to maintain the club in Ligue 1 in 2003, then during his revival in 2004. Chelsea and Stade Rennais found a financial deal in January 2004 to transfer him in June, in exchange of a 12 million euros fee. Arrived in England, Čech became one of the best goalkeepers in the world and went on to win many trophies. Now, only a victory in Champion's League misses in his achievements with his club.

Recruited in Summer 2006, Bruno Cheyrou wasn’t unanimously welcomed in Rennes. However, after a difficult start, he imposed himself as a leader in the midfield. Very technical, left footed, he is at his best in central position, either just ahead of the defensive line or right behind the forwards. The former Liverpool man had a difficult second season, Guy Lacombe even trying him as a Centre Back, with little success. His 2008-2009 season was more successful, even though he didn’t manage to establish himself as an incumbent starter. In Summer 2009, he was a victim of Yann M’Vila’s outbreak in the first team, and his playing time was restricted to the minimum. In January 2010, he was released from Rennes and signed an 18-month contract with Anorthosis Famagusta (Cyprus).

17 July 2002

An experienced goalkeeper, born and trained in Caen, Fabrice Catherine joined the Stade Rennais for the 2007-2008 season. Arriving as the third choice keeper, he kept himself fit and ready to cover any unavailabilities of Simon Pouplin or Patrice Luzi, while working closely with the young keepers from the Reserve and Academy. Having previously played for Sedan, Laval, Tours, and even Estoril in Portuguese second division, Fabrice Catherine signed a one year contract with Rennes in July 2007. A year later, his contract wasn’t extended, and the player was released by the club.

17 July 2002

Arrived in Rennes in summer 2005, Amadou Coulibaly was soon left on the sidelines after a serious injury, which condemned him to a nearly void first season. The powerful right back tried his best afterwards, to try and get his chance in the first team, but numerous injuries hindered his ambitions in Rennes. He eventually left the club in 2007, two years after he first arrived, with no appearance in the professional team and only a handful of games with the Reserve.
