In 1997, Jonathan Guillou was one of the biggest prospects at Stade Rennais’ Academy, which was witnessing simultaneously the blossoming careers of Yoann Bigné, Ousmane Dabo and Mikaël Silvestre. With this backdrop, the central defender or defensive midfielder was drafted into the First Team squad by Guy David. As a result of his lack of experience, and a disappointing pre-season, the club plunged back into the transfer market at the end of the transfer period, bringing in Pierre Maroselli and Philippe Lévenard. Even if the two new signings didn’t set the world on fire, the name Guillou would never end up on the team-sheet. In the 1998/1999 season, he was completely excluded from Paul Le Guen plans, and sent him to play his games for the Reserves in CFA (French 4th Division). After a mixed bag loan at Angers in 1999/2000, he returned to Rennes, without playing. He left Rennes once more in 2001, with spells at numerous clubs in National (French 3rd Division), before finally making a breakthrough at Swiss outfit Servette in Geneva in 2007.
