Philippe Troussier Biography »
Philippe Omar Troussier (born March 21, 1955 in Paris) is a French football manager and a former professional player. After a modest playing career within the French leagues he moved into management where he started out within the lower echelons of French football, however it was his move to Ivorian team ASEC Mimosas where he started to distinguish himself as a manager after winning several league titles with them. This would soon see him have a long association with African football and particularly their national teams, with Côte d'Ivoire, Nigeria, South Africa and Burkina Faso being teams he managed. His international management career would continue with Japan where he had a successful spell with them by winning the 2000 AFC Asian Cup, since then he has returned to club management and is currently the manager of Chinese football team Shenzhen Ruby.
