Dominique Bijotat (born 3 January 1961 in Chassignoles, Indre) is a former professional French football midfielder from France, who obtained eight international caps (no goals) for the French national team during the 1980s.


Most of his career was spent with AS Monaco, playing there in two separate periods 1976–1987 and 1988–1991. He also spent one season with Bordeaux and eventually ended his playing career at Châteauroux.

International career[edit]

He was a member of the national team that won the gold medal at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles.[1]

Coaching career[edit]

After the recent home defeat against Ajaccio, the coach has quit Ligue 2 club LB Châteauroux, the team was in 16th place.[2]

On 4 June 2010 FC Metz officials hired the former LB Chateauroux coach with the objective of leading the team back to Ligue 1 within two years.[3][4]
His spell ended up in a nightmare as Metz was relegated in May 2012 in National for the first time, the French third division, before the last game of the season. He was even asked by the President not to coach the team for the last game at home.[5] He has not coached any other professional team ever since.
