Marcel Mansat was born in the Creuse region in the centre of France, and he played his first football with JS Puteaux, before signing professional terms with Stade Rennais in 1945. He was used on the right side of the Rennes attack in his first season in a Red and Black shirt, and he would soon become a first-choice member of the First Team in the starting line-up. As of the 1947/1948 season, he started to play in a more withdrawn role, Rennes taking advantage of his versatility to select him to play in midfield, or even at full back. He spent eight years with Stade Rennais University Club, which would be his only experience as a professional. He would make a total of 188 appearances for Rennes, scoring ten goals, including a hat-trick in the French Cup in a 3-1 win over local rivals Lorient on 15th December 1946. In 1953, he left Stade Rennais to end his playing days in amateur football with l'Arsenal Sports de Rennes.
