Frey played exclusively at amateur level in his country, having joined AS Cannes' youth system at the age of 10, and appearing in two seasons for its reserves as a senior. In 2004, aged 20, he moved to Italy with A.C. Legnano, in Serie C.
After one year, Frey signed for Serie B club Modena FC, being an important first-team member during his spell, with 62 league games in his last two years combined. In the 2008 summer, he joined A.C. ChievoVerona in a co-ownership deal along with Angelo Antonazzo, in exchange for Salvatore Bruno and Michele Troiano. He made his Serie A debut on 5 October 2008, in a 0–2 home loss against ACF Fiorentina, and finished his first season with 21 league games as the Verona outfit retained its division status.
On 17 July 2009, Chievo signed Frey on a permanent basis. During his spell with the club, he often shared right-back duties with Gennaro Sardo.
Frey's older brother, Sébastien, is also a footballer. A goalkeeper, he too was brought up at Cannes, and also played most of his career in Italy, namely at Parma FC (five seasons) and Fiorentina (six).
