William Stanger arrived at Stade Rennais aged 14 in 2000, and rapidly added titles to his CV with national titles with the U17s in 2002, and the Reserves in 2004. In between, he played an active role in Rennes’ victory in the Gambardella Cup (French FA Youth Cup) in 2003. In the Final, he replaced N’Guéma with six minutes to go. With the competition from Briand, and N’Guéma, he was never given the opportunity to sign professional forms with Rennes. So, in 2006 he left Rennes along with Antoine Ponroy to join Paul Le Guen at Glasgow Rangers. In Scotland, he was to appear on the team-sheet 16 times, and was given one start against Partizan Belgrade in the UEFA Cup. But he suffered when the Breton Manager was sacked, and left to join Paris Saint Germain’s reserves the following year. As the creator and animator of Football Coaching Courses for youngsters in Saint Malo since 2008, he stopped his playing career in 2015/2016, and returned to Stade Rennais as a coach at the School of Football.
