Christophe Robert (born March 30, 1964 in Montpon-Ménestérol) is a former footballer from France.

He is famous for having been involved in the bribery scandal involving Olympique de Marseille and his team US Valenciennes. He [1] and teammates, Jorge Burruchaga[2] and Jacques Glassman[2] were contacted by OM player Jean-Jacques Eydelie,[3] in order to let l'OM win and, more importantly, not to injure any OM player ahead of the UEFA Champions League final.

He was then suspended for 2 seasons by the French Football Federation.[4]
