His father, Jean-Luc Dufrennes, who worked for the French Football Federation training coaches had been a great influence on his playing career in his youth.
Dufrennes senior was Gregory's guide and inspiration as he took his first steps in football, growing up in Les Ulis, a suburb 20 km outside the French capital of Paris, where Thierry Henry was born and Patrice Evra went to school.
Growing up under the tutelage of his father, Dufrennes moved to Cannes when he was 14 to sharpen his skills at a training school. A couple of years later, he was representing the France Under-17, U18 and U19 teams. A few of his teammates from those junior teams, included Jeremy Toulalan and Jérémie Aliadière.
He played professionally with Amiens, Sete, and Valenciennes but decided to move abroad.
Dufrennes was in his second season with Sete when he first received an offer to play in the UAE and he landed in Dubai in January 2006.
After moving to Dubai against his father's wishes, he played for Dubai SC and then made a move to Dubai-based Al-Ahli.
He scored 41 goals in 43 matches with Dubai and his performances earned him a deal with Al Ahli in 2008. It was the season Ahli went on to win the Pro League title.
The club failed to find a place for the striker and gave him the option of playing for their second team, or leaving. He finally moved to find success with Al-Ittihad Kalba.
His technic and professionalism was an asset not only for Ittihad-Kalba club, but for the UAE Pro League.
