Georges Carnus (born 13 August 1940) is a former French international footballer who played as goalkeeper.


He was selected in France for FIFA World Cup 1966 in England but remained Marcel Aubour's substitute.He later signed with AS Saint-Étienne, winning his first titles.His successes with les Verts and his talent as a goalkeeper allowed him to take Marcel Aubour's titular spot in France's goal after the FIFA World Cup 1966.In 1971, he surprisingly left AS Saint-Étienne, along with teammate Bernard Bosquier for Olympique Marseille.Their combination in l'OM's defense was full of success, and Marseille won French championship and Coupe de France in 1972.
