François Marque (born July 31, 1983 in Troyes) is a French footballer who plays as a defender for Yverdon Sport FC.[1]

Football career[edit]

Marque started his career in his native France with amateurs RCS La Chapelle in 2002 where he played 55 games over the course of 2 seasons. His good performances there caught the eye of Ligue 2 club FC Libourne-Saint-Seurin whom he signed for in 2004. He did not play any games there and left after just 1 season to join Swiss Challenge League side FC Baulmes in 2005. He impressed at Baulmes and gathered interest from several Swiss Super League teams. After much speculation about his future he joined FC Basel in January 2007.[2] At Basel, he started just two games in his first half season, coincidentally against rivals Grasshopper Club Zürich and FC Zürich. The next year during the 2007/08 season he progressed and formed an effective central defensive partnership with Swedish internationalist Daniel Majstorović, which saw him become a first-team regular. Majstorović left in Summer 2008, however, and Marque formed a new partnership with David Abraham. On 1 February 2010 the central defender signed a three-and-a-half-year contract with Grenoble Foot. On 19 July 2011 he played in a friendly for Crystal Palace FC. In 05.08.2011 he signed up with French second league team SC Bastia. In October 2013 he signed for 1. FC Saarbrücken, but was released four months later after failing a doping test.[3]

Marque signed for S.League side Brunei DPMM FC for the 2017 S.League season.[4] His debut on 3 March against Home United only lasted half-an-hour as he went off with an injury, but not before conceding a penalty.[5] He was released later that month and was replaced by Serbian Željko Savić.[6]
