Early career[edit]

He started his career in Masthuggets BK, but left Sweden to be with his Guadeloupean father in Paris,[1] France, he then started to play for Levallois SC in Championnat de France amateur.[2] He then returned to Sweden and Gothenburg and played for Majorna BK for one year before they expend their senior team, he then moved to Lärje-Angereds IF where IFK Göteborg got interested in him and signed him prior to the 2007 season, however due to poor performance he only played 14 games and was in the autumn of 2008 loaned out to Go Ahead Eagles in the Dutch Eerste Divisie, yet a continuing injury made the Dutch club break the loan contract ahead of time.[3]

Häcken[edit]

In 2009 he signed for IFK Göteborgs local rivals and newly promoted BK Häcken.[4] His first season for his new club proved to be a success as he played 29 games (25 from start) and scored 6 goals during the teams successful campaign ending at an impressive fifth place in Allsvenskan.[5] Following his successful 2009 season he was hailed by many as a future star and a possible candidate for the top scorer title in Allsvenskan 2010.[6][7][8]

During the season 2011, it became apparent that Ranégie had improved since his season of 2010 when he scored 12 goals in 30 games. He immediately took a place as the topscorer in Allsvenskan 2011 and when he left the club he had scored 18 goals in 22 games.

Malmö FF[edit]

On 30 August 2011 Ranégie signed with Swedish champions Malmö FF. The transfer sum was one of the highest ever paid between two Swedish clubs. Ranégie made his debut against Gefle IF on 8 September 2011[9] and scored his first goal against Halmstads BK on 21 September 2011.[10] On 25 September 2011, Ranégie sealed the championship win for Helsingborgs IF of the 2011 season by scoring the 1–1 tying goal against AIK who were the only championship competitors to Helsingborgs IF at that time.[11] In total Ranégie played seven matches and scored three goals for his first season at Malmö FF.

Udinese[edit]

On the last day of the transfer window, in August 2012, Ranégie transferred to Serie A club Udinese on a five year contract.[12] Mathias scored his first goal for Udinese on 24 September, a header against Milan in a 2–1 victory.
