After taking his first steps in football with US Albi, Guy Lacombe started his professional career in earnest in 1976 with FC Nantes. As a forward, he would stay three seasons with the Canaries (Nantes), where he was only used intermittently, but with whom he finished French Champions in 1977. In 1979, he left to play for Lens where he would become first-choice striker, and occasionally midfielder. After two seasons with the Red and Golds, he moved on to Tours, where he played between 1981 and 1983. There, he would notch up over 40 appearances each of his two seasons with the club. In 1983, he went on to sign for Toulouse, again for two seasons, during which time, he made 9 appearances with the French Olympic team, and even won the Olympic Gold Medal in 1984. In 1985, Stade Rennais, who had just been promoted to the First Division, recruited Lacombe to add some experience to their attack. After a first season which he took full part in, but which proved ultimately to be a disappointment in terms of efficiency, he was loaned out to Lille the following season. He would eventually leave Rennes for good in 1987 to join AS Cannes, where he would finish his playing days as a professional footballer. Subsequently, he went into football management as of 1995, taking on the roles of First Team Manager with the likes of Cannes, Toulouse, Paris Saint Germain, and - of course - Stade Rennais, as well as Monaco.
