Jean-François Larios, nicknamed "Turbo" (born August 27, 1956 in Sidi Bel Abbès, Algeria) is a retired football midfielder from France. He earned seventeen international caps (five goals) for the French national team during the late 1970s and early 1980s.[1]

A player of Saint-Étienne, Larios was a member of the French squad in the 1982 World Cup. However, he played only two matches after rumours surfaced that he was having an affair with Michel Platini's wife.[2]
