Club career

Early career

After starting his career with Olympique Lyonnais in 1994, Giuly was signed by Monaco in January 1998.

Giuly captained Monaco on a run to the Champions League Final, where they lost to Porto in the 2003–04 season.

Barcelona

Barcelona paid €7 million to Monaco in order to sign him on 28 June 2004 with a contract until June 2008.[1]

Giuly helped Barcelona to win La Liga in the 2004–05 season. He was the second top scorer for the club scoring 11 goals. Although his season was disrupted by several muscle injuries, Giuly was able to fulfil his promise to reach double digits in goals in his first year at his new club.

In 2005–06 he helped win the Spanish title again, as well as capture the second Champions League trophy for the Catalan club. Giuly propelled Barça into the Champions League Final by scoring the only goal in their semi-final against Milan.

In the 2006–07 season, Giuly, although still a key member of the Barça squad, eventually lost his starting spot in the team, when Lionel Messi was promoted from the club's youth ranks. This resulted in Giuly saying his farewell to Barça.

Roma

On July 17, 2007, Giuly signed with Roma for a salary of €1.8 million per year and €4.5 million to his former club. Giuly's only season at Roma had him scoring more than many starting players which made him in the top five scorers at the club for the season he spent at Stadio Olimpico.[2]

Paris Saint-Germain

On July 18, 2008, Giuly signed with Paris Saint-Germain for a fee of €2.5 million.

International career

Giuly has been capped for France, but was removed from his country's Euro 2004 squad due to a leg injury he sustained in the 2004 Champions League Final.[3]

Giuly was not selected for the French 2006 World Cup squad, as young Marseille playmaker Franck Ribéry was selected over Giuly.[4] However, with Djibril Cissé having broken his leg in a World Cup warm-up match against China, Giuly could have been called up, but he asserted after the initial France squad was announced that he would go on holiday to Dubai and Kish instead of waiting idly in the stand-by squad, and Sidney Govou was called up instead.
