Football careerEdit

Born in Bort-les-Orgues, Corrèze, Dutuel was a product of the famous AJ Auxerre youth system, which also included Basile Boli, Eric Cantona, William Prunier and Pascal Vahirua, all under the tutelage of legendary Guy Roux. He made his first-team – and Ligue 1 – debut on 16 July 1985 in a 0–0 away draw against Stade Lavallois (aged not yet 18), and was already an undisputed starter by the time the side reached the semifinals of the UEFA Cup in 1992–93.

After a spell at Olympique de Marseille Dutuel moved to FC Girondins de Bordeaux, which he helped to the 1996 edition of the UEFA Cup final, where he scored the club's only goal in an eventual 1–5 aggregate loss to FC Bayern Munich.

Dutuel then moved to Spain where, safe for the 1996–97 season with Celta de Vigo, he was highly unsuccessful. He also represented Real Valladolid in that country (still in La Liga), and closed out his career two years later after stints with AC Bellinzona (Switzerland) and RCF Paris.
