Philippe Omar Troussier, (French pronunciation: [filip tʁusje]; born 21 March 1955) is a French former association football player who was most recently the manager of the Vietnam national football team. After a modest playing career as a defender 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 Ivory Coast, Nigeria, South Africa and Burkina Faso being teams he managed.
