Jocelyn Gourvennec (born 22 March 1972) is a French football manager and former player. He played as a midfielder for clubs such as Lorient, Rennes, Nantes, Marseille, Montpellier, Bastia, Angers and Clermont.

Club career[edit]

Born in Brest, Gourvennec started his professional footballing career with Rennes and during his time at the club he won the Ligue 2 Player of the Year award of 1993.[1] He later moved to Marseille, where he played in the 1999 UEFA Cup Final, winning a runners-up medal with the Olympians after losing 3–0 against Parma.[2]

Managerial career[edit]

Following the end of his playing career, Gourvennec got into management, being named as Guingamp's manager in May 2010.[3] On 3 May 2014, he led Guingamp to success in the Coupe de France for only their second time by beating his old club Rennes.[4] In May 2016, Gourvennec took up the helm of Ligue 1 team Bordeaux.[4]

On 8 November 2018, Gourvennec returned to Guingamp as their new manager after sacking Antoine Kombouaré.[5] On 22 May 2019, the club announced that he had left the club by mutual agreement, after Gourvenenc was unable to guide the team to safety and the season ended with relegation to Ligue 2 for the first time since the 2003–04 season.[6]
