Even before he made his professional debut, Zana Allée was being tracked by the big European clubs, such as Arsenal. But in the end, the player from Ginglin (Saint-Brieuc) opted to join Stade Rennais in 2009 after completing his pre-training at Ploufragan. Born in Baghdad, into a Kurdish family, he left Iraq as a youngster, and still didn’t speak French when he kicked his first ball in anger. In spite of a 2012/2013 season disrupted by injury, the older of the Allée brothers began the summer pre-season training session with the professional squad. In his first pre-season friendly, this pocket winger (1m 64cm tall) even scored a goal, and justified the great deal of hope that he would succeed. In December 2013, he signed his first professional contract for three years with Stade Rennais. After making just 6 appearances with the pros, he was loaned to Auxerre in January 2014. When he returned from his loan spell, he spent the entire 2014/2015 season playing with the reserves in CFA2 (French Fifth Division). On the 3rd August 2015, he left Rennes to sign for AC Ajaccio in Ligue 2.
