Career[edit]

He was a member of the Marseille team which won the 1993 UEFA Champions League. He played more than 400 games in European first divisions, including 120 appearances with Valencia in Spain, where he played until his retirement in 2002. He played in the UEFA Champions League Finals of 2000 and 2001 for them, but was on the losing side on both occasions.

International career[edit]

He played 37 times for France and scoring a goal. Angloma was part of the squad at Euro 92 and Euro 96.

Comeback with Guadeloupe[edit]

In 2006, Angloma came out of retirement to play for his native région, Guadeloupe, and help them qualify for the 2007 Caribbean Nations Cup.[1] He was allowed to represent Guadeloupe because Guadeloupe is not a FIFA member and only participates in regional competitions. After his return from retirement, Angloma moved from his natural position as a right back and played as a midfield playmaker for Guadeloupe.[2]
