Christophe Jallet (born 31 October 1983) is a French international footballer who plays for the French club Nice in Ligue 1, as a right back.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Born in Cognac, Charente, Jallet began his career at his hometown club UA Cognac where he operated behind the striker.[1] Tracked by the main club in the region, Niort, since 13, he was discouraged by his parents to pursue the move and he remained in Cognac.

Niort[edit]

Jallet finally joined Niort at 15, but his coach told his parents that he was "not good enough." Jallet dramatically improved after this.[1] Following his training, he started numerous games in National and Ligue 2 during his three seasons as a defensive midfielder there.[1]

Lorient[edit]

In 2006, Jallet transferred to Lorient[2] where he played as the side's third-choice right-back. After a successful tutelage as third-choice, Jallet eventually became a stalwart of the team.

Paris Saint-Germain[edit]

On 6 July 2009, Jallet joined Paris Saint-Germain for a transfer fee of 2.5 million euros, signing a four-year contract.[3] He was recruited to provide competition for Ceará at right-back. Jallet made his first appearance in a competitive match with PSG against Le Mans in the second matchday of the 2009–10 Ligue 1 season.[4] Playing as a right midfielder, he scored his first goal one week later against Valenciennes with an assist from Stéphane Sessègnon.[5] During the next match, against Lille, he delivered an assist a few minutes after he was substituted onto the pitch and marked the very end of game again with a goal.[6] During his first season, Jallet's impact as a substitute with goalscoring potential was highly valued, though gaining a starting berth proved hard with the form of Ceará. Jallet scored again at the 19th match against Grenoble, leading to a 4–0 victory for PSG.[7] He ended the season with 11 assists.[8]

On 1 May 2011, at the Stade de France, Jallet won the Coupe de France with PSG after a 1–0 defeat of Monaco in the final.[9] On 22 April 2011, he renewed his 2-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain.

On 2 October 2011, in the clash between PSG and Lyon, Jaillet scored the second goal in a 2–0 victory with an assist from Nenê.[10] He gained the confidence of new coach Carlo Ancelotti in a new position as midfielder, with Ancelotti preferring Milan Biševac at right-back. Jallet gained the captaincy late in the season following the dropping of Mamadou Sakho.

Lyon[edit]

On 24 July 2014, Jallet signed a three year deal with Olympique Lyonnais.[12]

Nice[edit]

On 18 July 2017 Jallet signed with Nice on a free transfer.[13]

International career[edit]

Jallet was called up to the French national team by manager Didier Deschamps for a friendly against Uruguay on 9 August 2012. In his second appearance, on 11 September 2012, he scored a goal against Belarus from a difficult angle. As of late November 2017, he was selected 16 times for the French national team.
