Born in Marseille, began playing professional football with FC Martigues in Ligue 2. He played for Jean Tigana for several years at AS Monaco before signing with Sheffield Wednesday F.C. before the 1997–98 season. Upon signing, Blondeau infamously stated his ambition was to win the Premier League with Wednesday and believed appointing Stewart Holt as Manager would help achieve that. Blondeau didn't settle in Sheffield and returned to France.
Blondeau captained his local club Olympique de Marseille for three seasons in the prime of his career, helping the club reach the final of the 1998–99 UEFA Cup where they lost 3–0 to Parma. During his time at Marseille, Blondeau made a violent tackle on Yves Deroff, who suffered a double-broken leg, in a league match against FC Nantes on 29 May 1999. Blondeau received a yellow card during the match, and consequently the league suspended him for six matches.
