Football career

During his career, Di Meco played mostly for Olympique de Marseille; after starting as a midfielder, and serving loans at AS Nancy and FC Martigues, he returned definitely in 1988, going on to amass a further 153 first division encounters, in an eventual four-in-a-row run of domestic leagues.

After Marseille's relegation in 1993-94 due to irregularities, Di Meco joined AS Monaco FC, still appearing regularly until his 1998 retirement, at almost 35, with another league title.

For France, he won the Kirin Cup in 1994 and was in roster for Euro 1996. After this competition, where he was now only backup, to younger Bixente Lizarazu, Di Meco retired internationally.

Post-retirement

After retiring from the pitches, Di Meco pursued a career as a politician, acting as municipal council for UMP, in Marseille.
