Nancy, where he made his professional debut in 1950 before joining the great Stade de Reims in 1957, with whom he won three French championship titles and reached the Club Champions final in 1959. International, he also participated in the epic of the 1958 World Cup with a fine third place for the Blues. Author of 18 goals in 37 selections for the Blues, Roger Piantoni had marked his time. He also gave his name to a stand at the Marcel-Picot stadium.
