René-Bernard Munoz was a striker, born in the Yonne region of France. He began playing football in amateur football with AJ Clamecy in the Burgundy area, before getting his first taste of professional football with Stade Rennais in 1951. He would spend two seasons at the club, only being used sparingly as a consequence of stiff competition for places from the other wingers in the Rennes squad of the day (Le Gall, Le Dren and Callichio). He would make just 11 appearances in those two seasons, scoring his lone goal with Stade Rennais University Club on the Round of 64 of the French Cup against Sète, on 13th January 1952 (2-1 win after extra-time). In 1953, he would leave Rennes to join Toulouse in the First Division, for whom he would also only see the rare appearance. Eventually, it would be at Aix-en-Provence in the Second Division where he would finally get more gametime, being a regular in the First-Team starting line-up (1954-1957). He ended his professional career with at Grenonble at the end of the 1957/1958 season, and then returned to Brittany to become Player-Manager, and then Manager of US Saint-Conwoïon de Redon in the First Division of the local league. After that, he would become a PE teacher. He passed away at the ripe old age of 85, after a long struggle with illness.
