Georges Carnus (born 13 August 1940) is a former French international footballer who played as goalkeeper.


He was selected in France for FIFA World Cup 1966 in England but remained Marcel Aubour's substitute. He later signed with AS Saint-Étienne, winning his first titles. His successes with les Verts and his talent as a goalkeeper allowed him to take Marcel Aubour's titular spot in France's goal after the FIFA World Cup 1966.In 1971, he surprisingly left AS Saint-Étienne, along with teammate Bernard Bosquier for Olympique Marseille.Their combination in l'OM's defense was full of success, and Marseille won French championship and Coupe de France in 1972.
