Senegalese-born defender Fernand Pordié started his professional playing career with Toulouse, before signing for Stade Rennais in 1946. In his first season as as a Rennes player, he would only be used twice: His debut coming in an away game at Metz on 13th October 1946. He got more gametime in the following season, becoming the understudy of the first-choice centre-back, André Bordier. Pordié would go on to make 16 appearances. At the beginning of the 1948/1949 campaign, he was given a role in the starting line-up, but he chose to leave the Red and Blacks after just three months of the season to join Angers, where he would become a mainstay of the Angers defence for two years, before moving on to Monaco for the 1951/1952 season. The last spell of his playing career as a professional footballer would be with AS Troyes between 1952 and 1955, helping them to promotion to the First Division in 1954, having finished as runners-up in the Second Division. After finishing as a professional, he dropped into amateur football to manager Jeunesse Sportive de Cugnaux between 1961 and 1988, Following Pordié's death, in 1995, Cugnaux named their stadium after their former manager as a tribute.
