Di Meco was born in Avignon, Vaucluse. During his career, he played mostly for Olympique de Marseille. After starting as a midfielder and serving loans at AS Nancy and FC Martigues, he returned definitely in 1988, going on to amass a further 153 Ligue 1 games in an eventual four-in-a-row run of domestic leagues.
After Marseille's relegation at the end of the 1993–94 season, due to irregularities, Di Meco joined AS Monaco FC, still appearing regularly until his 1998 retirement at almost 35 years of age, with another league title conquered.
For France, Di Meco won the Kirin Cup in 1994 and was in roster for UEFA Euro 1996. After the latter competition, where he acted as backup to the younger Bixente Lizarazu, he retired from international football.
