Jean-Marc Furlan (born 20 November 1957 in Sainte-Foy-la-Grande, France) is a football manager. He currently coaches Troyes AC.[1][2]

Coaching career[edit]

On 3 December 2009, Furlan became the coach of FC Nantes, replacing Gernot Rohr,[3] formerly was the Head Coach of RC Strasbourg.[4] On 20 February 2010 FC Nantes officials dismissed the coach, he was replaced by Baptiste Gentili.[5][6]

He coached Strasbourg, Nantes, and now Troyes; he is considered in France as a shrewd tactician with a strong commitment to attacking football and an eye for young talent. Gourcuff is thus widely credited with having overseen the progress of youngsters such as: Chalme (Bordeaux), Gomis (Lyon), Matuidi (PSG), Obbadi (Monaco), N'sakala (Anderlecht), Sidibe (Lille), Perquis (REal Betis)...
