At the express request of Le Guen, Stade Rennais FC went on the lookout for a full-back in the Winter transfer window of 2001. With the goal of giving Réveillère and Escudé a rest from time to time, the Red and Blacks opted for Grégory Paisley, former team-mate of Le Guen at Paris Saint Germain. Unfortunately, this left-footer wasn’t able to fulfil his role to the full as he was repeatedly hampered by injuries. After playing just four games, he watched as the club sacked Le Guen and replaced him with Gourcuff. Under the new boss, Paisley was able to carry out his role as understudy, making 26 appearances with 18 starts. In the words of his different managers, Paisley represented a paradox. He went from being international class at training to something much less when he actually played. In the end, Paisley’s spell in Brittany was rather flat, and he left Rennes to sign for Sochaux in July 2002.
