After his junior year, Arnaud turned professional, and was drafted 50th overall in the 2002 MLS SuperDraft by the Kansas City Wizards. He hardly played at all his first year, registering only 43 minutes in three games. Although his second year began much the same, Arnaud began to get significant time as the year progressed, and finished the year having played in 18 games, and scored three goals. Although his performance in 2003 boded well for his 2004 season, Arnaud exceeded everybody's expectations. After Preki and Igor Simutenkov went down with long-term injuries before the beginning of the season, Arnaud was given a starting role in the Wizards' offense next to Josh Wolff. Arnaud proved he deserved the opportunity from the outset, and went on to start all 30 of Kansas City's games, scoring nine goals and eight assists while leading the club to first place in the Western Conference.

Arnaud remained a starter for the club for the next several years. Before the 2010 season, Arnaud was named the team's new captain by coach Peter Vermes. During the 2011 season injuries limited his play but he still remained a key player for the club helping Sporting to a first place Eastern Conference finish during the regular season.

On November 28, 2011, Arnaud was traded to new expansion team Montreal Impact for defender Seth Sinovic and allocation money. He was named captain of the Montreal Impact for the team's first season in Major League Soccer. On March 17, 2012, before a crowd of 58,912 at Olympic Stadium in Montreal, Arnaud scored the first ever goal for the Montreal Impact in MLS in the 56th minute by heading a cross from Sanna Nyassi into the top right corner against Chicago Fire keeper Paolo Tornaghi.

On December 10, 2013, Arnaud was traded to D.C. United in exchange for an international roster slot.

On March 3, 2016, Arnaud officially announced his retirement. He was immediately placed to D.C. United's coaching staff.


Arnaud made his first appearance for the United States national team as a late substitute during the U.S.'s 4-2 friendly defeat against Brazil on September 9, 2007 at Soldier Field in Chicago. He scored his first international goal on July 11, 2009 against Haiti in the 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts.
