After the successful import of Julien Escudé in 1999, Stade Rennais FC were confident that the Cannes connection would again work well for them in taking another defender a year later. Juré Primorac, son of Boro (former player and loyal right-hand-man at Arsenal under Arsène Wenger) was a source for a lot of hope for Paul Le Guen and his staff after a few promising appearances in Division 2. But the French-Croat never made it at Rennes, and was disappointing on each occasion that he played for the Reserves in CFA (French 4th Division). He even spent all of the 2001/2002 season training with the Reserves. He didn’t make the breakthrough at Créteil in Division 2, where he was sent on loan, either. He returned to La Pivierdière training ground and in 2003/2004 he run out the last year of his contract in complete anonymity. Re-positioned as a defensive midfielder, he bounced back at Celik Zenica in Bosnia, before returning to France to play for Ivry in CFA in 2006.
