A right-winger from the Haut-Rhin region of France, René Krumm started his playing days with FC Saint-Louis. He would only get to experience one season as a professional, in 1954, he signed for Stade Rennais, who were playing in the Second Division at the time. He was recommended to Rennes by his coach Léon Boésinger, who had played for Rennes between 1936 and 1945. Alas, he sustained a nasty injury at the beginning of the 1954/1955 season, suffering a fracture to his left foot in an Odorico Cup tie against Nantes. That pretty much put paid to his season, and he would make one solitary appearance on the last day of the Division Two season, in a defeat against Rouen. He would be released at the end of the campaign, and he returned to his former club, Saint-Louis for the following season. He ended his playing days with FC Hégenheim, where he spent several years, notably picking up the title of regional champions of Alsace in 1957/1958.
