Jacques "Jacky" Munaron (born 8 September 1956, Namur) is a former football goalkeeper, and currently the goalkeeper coach of FP Halle-Gooik.
As a young player, Jacky Munaron started as the keeper of the youth team of FC Dinant. Munaron stayed in Dinant and became a player of the A-team. FC Dinant played in the Third Division at that time. In 1974, Jacky was discovered by RSC Anderlecht and moved to Brussels.
Over there, he was only a substitute player, as Jan Ruiter, the Dutch keeper of Anderlecht, was the first choice of the trainer. Also later, when Anderlecht bought Nico de Bree, another Dutch player of RWDM, Munaron was a substitute player.
Nevertheless, Munaron sometimes got some chances to play and became quickly the real number one of Anderlecht. Ruiter quit playing, De Bree was transferred and Munaron stayed. Munaron stayed in total 15 seasons in Anderlecht, from 1974 until 1989. He was four times champion with Anderlecht, won 4 times the Belgian Cup, two times the Europacup II and the UEFA-cup in 1983.
1988, the competition within the team was stronger again. Munaron became older and Anderlecht chose the more and more its younger keeper Filip De Wilde, still a coming talent then. As a result, Jacky Munaron moved to Club Liège in 1989.
1992, Standard de Liège wanted to buy Munaron from Club Liège and Munaron went to Standard. The keeper was 36 years at that time and became a substitute, because Gilbert Bodart was the first keeper of Standard in the early '90s.
1995, Munaron went to Eendracht Aalst, but 1996, he decided to stop playing. He was an 8-time Red Devil.
After his career as a player, Munaron became a trainer. He was keeper trainer of the Red Devils, RSC Anderlecht and the Turkish team Trabzonspor. As from the season 2010–2011, he worked for AA Gent. At the start of the season 2014-15, he left the club. He went to FCV Dender to become goalkeeper coach. After this adventure he became the goalkeeper coach of Royal Excelsior Mouscron (Belgian first division).
At the end of the season 2016-2017, Jacky was pushed away from REM in a very disrespectful manner, making him decide to leave the field football behind and to choose a new challenge, namely Futsal.
As of July 1, 2017, Jacky became a goalkeeper coach at FP Halle-Gooik (a Belgian top club who has become champion in the first grade of Futsal in the last 3 years). Again, he will be able to enjoy football again at a high level, as FP Halle-Gooik also participates in the Futsal Champions League.
