Jocelyn Angloma is a right-sided defender, born in Guadeloupe, he joined Stade Rennais in 1985. A player who was pretty much unheard of in those days in mainland France. I would soon make a name for himself, with a rapid rise to fame with the Red and Blacks. Starting out with the Reserves at Rennes, he found himself called up to the First Team after two months. He would blossom as a right-sided midfieder, playing 15 matches in his first season, and then made a further 30 appearances in his second year at the club. After a catastrophic season in 1986/1987, when the club finished bottom of the league and were relegated, Angloma left Rennes to head to the North of France, where he signed for Lille in the First Division, and would stay there for three seasons, making in excess of 100 appearances in that time. In 1990, he was signed by Paris Saint Germain, and he was deployed there as a right-back for a season. After a full season of action in the French capital, he headed down South to sign for Olympique Marseille as of 1991. And it was at Marseille that he would enjoy his best period as a footballer, winning the French League title in 1992 and 1993, as well the prestigious Champions League in 1993. After three successful seasons with Marseille, Angloma tried his luck in Italy, spending two years with Torino, staying there until 1996. He was then recruited by Inter Milan the following season, and with the Nerazzurri, he reached the UEFA Cup Final in 1997. After Milan, he went to Valencia in Spain, where he would spent five years, during which he won the Spanish Cup in 1999, and then the Spanish League title in 2002. He also reached the Champions League Final twice with Valencia (in 2000 and 2001). He finished his playing career with Valenciennes at the ripe old age of 37 years old in 2002. During his illustrious playing career he was called up on numerous occasions by the French National Team, earning 37 caps between 1990 and 1996. After ending his professional playing career, he returned to Guadeloupe and his first club, Etoile de Morne à l'Eau, where he would play between 2003-2007, picking up a league title in his last year, before becoming Manager from 2009 to 2015. He would go on to make 14 appearances for his native island between 2006 and 2007. He became the National Team Manager of Guadeloupe in 2017.
