Career

Manset was born in Metz and started his career in his native France with Le Havre AC. In the 2007–08 season he managed to break into the reserve side, who played in the Championnat de France amateur, the fourth tier of French football. He went on to play eleven league matches and score one goal for the side during the campaign.[1] In the following season, Manset played a further 12 games for Le Havre Réserve but failed get on the scoresheet.[2] His last appearance for Le Havre came in the 2–1 win over Paris Saint-Germain Réserve at the Parc des Princes on 8 May 2009.[3]

Hereford United

Manset was released by Le Havre in the summer of 2009 and was recommended to Football League Two side Hereford United by Guy Ipoua. After a successful trial, he joined Hereford on a free transfer. His debut in English football came in the second round of the Football League Trophy where he featured as a substitute in the last 20 minutes of the game at home to Aldershot Town and scored a late goal to put the Bulls into a 2–1 lead. However, Aldershot quickly equalised and sent the game to a penalty shoot out, which Hereford later won 4–3. Manset scored what turned out to be the decisive penalty with a powerful strike into the top left corner of the goal.[4]

In the first round of the FA Cup, in the 2–0 win against Sutton United, Manset put Hereford in the lead after six minutes. However, after half an hour of play he was red carded for violent conduct after he reacted badly to a challenge by Alan Paulton.[5] His first goal in League Two came in the 3–1 away win at Northampton Town on 1 December 2009.[6] In late 2010 Manset enjoyed a run of goalscoring form under new Bulls boss Jamie Pitman, and was linked with a number of clubs from the Championship. Eventually, however, after intense speculation, he decided to join Reading ahead of the likes of Burnley, Coventry City and Cardiff.

Reading

Manset signed for Championship team Reading for an undisclosed fee on a two-and-a-half-year contract on 21 January 2011.[7] It is thought the deal, with add-ons, could eventually cost the Royals £400,000. Manset made his debut for Reading on 22 January 2011, coming on as a substitute just 21 hours after signing for the club.[8] On 1 February 2011, he scored his first goal for Reading after again coming on as a substitute, scoring what had looked to be an injury-time winner in the 2–2 draw at Cardiff City.[9] On 4 February 2011, Manset came off the bench against league leaders Queens Park Rangers. On 19 March 2011, Manset came off the bench against Barnsley to score the winning goal in the 71st minute to keep Reading's promotion push alive. Manset made his first start against Nottingham Forest on 9 February 2011 in a 4–3 win. On the 6th August 2011, Manset came on as a sub for Noel Hunt and scored two goals in three minutes to rescue a 2-2 draw for Reading against Millwall. His first was a 25 yard rocket and his second was a header from Jimmy Kebe's cross. Manset scored his fifth goal for Reading with a backheel in the last minute of extra time in a 3-2 win over Bristol City.

Shanghai Shenhua (Loan)

In 2011-12 season, Manset made six start and scored two goals. In the last day of the transfer window, Crawley Town manager Steve Evans revealed he tried to sign Manset on a last minute deal but only to be rejected.[10] Reading manager Brian McDermott prepared to loan out Manset to move on in search of regular first-team football and on 21 February 2012. Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua revealed the club have signed Manset on loan until June 30.[11][12] He scored his first goal for Shenhua on 27 May 2012 during Shenhua's home game against Guizhou Renhe, helping the team win 2-1. At the end of Manset's loan deal, he had scored 1 goal in 9 appearances for Shenhua.

Sion

On July 13th 2012, Manset moved from Reading to Sion on a 3 year contract for an undisclosed fee [13] Manset made his debut for Sion coming on as a second half substitue and scoring the only goal from the penaly spot in a 1-0 victory over Servette.[14] On 4 September 2012, Manset was suspended by Sion for 3 weeks after being found in the early hours of the morning in a Lausanne nightclub the day before Sion's game away to FC Zürich[15][16].

He made his first apperance for Sion since this suspension against FC Zürich on September 30.[17]

Personal life

Manset’s family have a long tradition of goat farming in their home village near Metz and in Côte d'Ivoire. On signing for Hereford United Manset purchased some goats and a paddock to continue the family tradition in his spare time.
