Born in Reims, Pires first started playing for the local youth team in 1988, when he was 15 years old. After 4 years here, he was spotted by FC Metz and invited to play for the Metz Youth academy for one year, before being taken to the senior squad. His senior debut came just 1 year after he joined Metz' youth club, against Olympique Lyon.

Despite not getting a lot of matches in his first season as a professional soccer player, Pires would soon become an important player for Metz' first squad. His attacking prowess earned him a goal tally of 43 goals in the 162 league appearances for Metz and in 1996, his debut in the France national team.

With France's impressive performance at the 1998 World Cup, where Pires had a major contribution in winning the trophy, he was bought by Olympique Marseille where Pires would spend 2 years with mixed performances. In his first season, Marseille was in the run to win the league during the entire season, but unfortunately for the soccer player, Pires and his team was just 1 point short to win it at the end.

His second season with the Marseille club saw the Frenchman suffer several annoying injuries that kept him off the pitch for over a quarter of his club's games, but by winning the European Championship with France in the summer of 2000, he became a priority for many big European clubs, including Real Madrid, Juventus Torino and Arsenal London. It was the latter who won the bid.

Leaving France, Robert Pires would have to fill some big shoes at Arsenal, since he was brought on to replace Marc Overmars, who had just left the London club for FC Barcelona. He was also a World and European champion with France, so that made fans expect even more from him, although the physicality of English soccer was tough on the Frenchman.

With his first season being an unimpressive one, mostly due to the fact that he needed some time to adapt to the new playing style, Pires eventually gained his good form back in the 2001-2002 season, helping Arsenal win the Premier League.In his next 4 seasons for the Gunners, Pires would become an indispensable first team member, helping them win the league again in 2003/2004, the FA Cup thrice in 2002, 2003 and 2005 and reaching the UEFA Champions League final in 2006, a final that Arsenal eventually lost to FC Barcelona.Unfortunately, that would be the last game Robert Pires would play for Arsenal and he was substituted early on with goalkeeper Almunia, after Jens Lehman was sent off in the beginning of that match. Following that disappointment and a silken squabble with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, Robert Pires decided to leave the team for Spanish club Villareal.
