Christophe Revault (born 22 March 1972 in Paris) is a French professional footballer who played as a goalkeeper. He is now the sporting director of his former club Le Havre.


Le Havre[edit]

Revault started his career with Le Havre, playing his first Ligue 1 game for them against Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes.

Paris SG[edit]

Revault would return to Paris to play for PSG in 1997, as a replacement for Bernard Lama, who was shipped off to West Ham United.

Stade Rennais[edit]

After a relatively disappointing spell with the Parisian club, Revault was snapped up by the Stade Rennais manager Paul Le Guen, a former team-mate of his at PSG, at the end of the 1997–98 season.


After two successful season in Rennes, Revault's services were bought by Toulouse, then also playing in Ligue 1. In 2001, Toulouse were forced to be relegated down two divisions for financial reasons, but despite this Revault stuck with the club, helping them gain two successive promotions back to the top flight, picking up an award for Ligue 2's best goalkeeper of the 2002–3 season on his way. Upon his return to the top division, he was renowned as one of the finest goalkeepers plying their trade in France, although never being picked for France's national side.

Return to Brittany[edit]

Revault stayed with Toulouse until 2006, when the new manager, Élie Baup, announced that Nicolas Douchez was his first choice for the goalkeeper's jersey, prompting a return to Stade Rennais in August 2006, where he was now the second-choice goalkeeper, snapping at the heels of young Simon Pouplin.

On 6 January 2007, Revault played his first match in the colours of Rennes since returning to the club in the Round of 32 of the Coupe de France against National side Romorantin. It proved to be a bitter-sweet experience for Revault as Rennes suffered a shocking 3–1 loss after extra time in front of their own fans at the Stade de la Route de Lorient.

Back to Le Havre[edit]

In June 2007 it was announced that Revault would leave Stade Rennais to return to Le Havre.

Post-playing Career[edit]

Revault retired from playing in 2010, but remained at Le Havre as a scout. He served as interim manager in two spells during 2012 and 2015, and has served as sporting director since December 2012.
