After arriving at Stade Rennais FC from Caen in 2005, Prince Oniangué made his debut with the Reserve team a year later. The French-Congolese player made his mark in the Huard’s side, mainly at centre-back with Dembélé, and on the odd occasion as defensive midfielder. His committed displays, in addition to his good aerial game, were enough to get him noticed by Dréossi and then Lacombe, who – between them – added his name on eight occasions to the First Team team-sheet between 2007-2008. Known to the general public for having donated a kidney to his brother, Oniangué finally got the chance to pull on the shirt for an official match. In the Last 32 of the League Cup against Le Mans in September 2008, which Rennes won on penalties after a 2-2 draw on the night, the Congolese international had a good game at the heart of midfield, but only managed 6 substitute appearances after that. After a positive loan spell at Angers in Ligue 2 in the 2009/2010 season, he was spotted by Tours, who signed him permanently in July 2010.
