Chrétien joined AS Nancy at the age of five. He attended Madine academy in Meuse briefly before he made his league debut in November 2002. He became a contracted player in February 2004.

In November 2006, Chrétien notoriously had a penalty saved by Basel FC striker Mladen Petrić after Basel goalkeeper Franco Costanzo was sent off in an UEFA Europa League group stage match.


On 1 September 2011, Chrétien joined Turkish side Bursaspor on a three-year contract.

International career[edit]

A French youth international, Chrétien earned his first call-up from his father's native Morocco in a friendly against Tunisia on 7 February 2007. He was a member of the Morocco squad that participated in the 2008 African Cup of Nations.
