Franck Grandel (born 17 March 1978) is a Guadeloupean footballer. Currently, he plays in the Ligue 2 for Troyes.

Club career[edit]

Grandel is a goalkeeper who was born in Pointe-à-Pitre, Guadeloupe, and made his debut in professional football, being part of the Skoda Xanthi squad, in the 2003-04 season. He has also played for Besançon RC, FC Libourne Saint-Seurin and Troyes AC, before joining FC Utrecht, in 2005. Grandel was released from his contract with FC Utrecht in November 2007 [1](Dutch).

He signed a two-year contract with French Ligue 2 side Dijon FCO just before the 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup.[2]

International career[edit]

During the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup, when Guadeloupe surprisingly advanced to the tournament semifinals, Grandel was given top goalkeeper award and was also named to the tournament All-star team. He had to leave the 2009 Gold Cup squad because of injury.[3]
