After having started playing football with R. Charleroi SC, Genaux began his professional career aged 17 at Standard Liège, where he helped to win one Belgian Cup and achieved two Pro League runner-up places.
In 1996 Genaux moved to England, joining Coventry City. However, his spell at the club lasted just half a season, with only four Premier League appearances before he signed, in January 1997, with Italy's Udinese Calcio.
Due to persisting injuries during the most part of his career, Genaux retired at just 29, after having returned to Standard for a final season. Afterwards he moved into coaching, starting with the youths at R.A.A. Louviéroise and R.C.S. Verviétois; for a few months in 2006, he took the reins of third division side RFC Sérésien (formerly Seraing).
Genaux played 22 times (being selected 27) with Belgium, the first being on 16 February 1992, in a friendly match against Tunisia, aged not yet 19. He seemed poised to be the successor of Eric Gerets in the Diables Rouges, although he was not picked up for the 1994 FIFA World Cup.
Genaux became a regular fixture in the following years, but Belgium failed to qualify for UEFA Euro 96. With the arrival of Georges Leekens, he lost his place in the national team, and was also not selected for the 1998 World Cup in France at the expense of Eric Deflandre and Bertrand Crasson; regarded as one of the best right-backs in Belgium in the 90s, he would not attend any major international tournaments, also missing Euro 2000 due to injury.
- Genaux's brother, Terrence, was also a footballer, with the pair being distantly related to Vivica Genaux, a mezzo-soprano.
- At Standard, alongside fellow internationals Philippe Léonard and Michaël Goossens, he was part of The Three Musketeers generation, hailed for their sporting talent but with a troublesome character (with Roberto Bisconti playing a smaller role).
