It took his move to Stamford Bridge in July 1996 to really kick-start his international career.
Although he made his debut while still at Strasbourg, the club where he had spent his entire professional career to that point, he did not play a single game in Euro 96.
Indeed he only really began pushing for a first-team place after winning the FA Cup with Chelsea in 1997.
Leboeuf's strengths are his distribution and runs out of defence.
He is also a good reader of the game, but can sometimes be made to look uncomfortable under an aerial bombardment and has risked the ire of opposition fans and players for his apparent play-acting when fouled.
Began his career as a striker at Toulon, where he was a team-mate and friend of Tottenham's French superstar David Ginola.
It was only as an 18-year-old that he switched to defence.
He remained part-time until he was 20, splitting his time between football and working as a travelling salesman.
