Jean-François Larios (born 27 August 1956) is a French former professional football midfielder. He earned seventeen international caps (five goals) for the French national team during the late 1970s and early 1980s.[1]

A player of Saint-Étienne, Larios was a member of the French squad in the 1982 World Cup. However, he played only two matches after rumours surfaced that he was having an affair with Michel Platini's wife.[2] In 1983 Larios became one of the very few French players to appear in the North American Soccer League when he joined the Montreal Manic.
