Julien Stéphan (born 18 September 1980) is a French former professional footballer and current manager of Ligue 1 side Rennes. He played as a midfielder.

Coaching career[edit]

Julien Stéphan immediately decided to become a coach after his short playing career. On 3 December 2018, Sabri Lamouchi was fired as manager of Rennes due to poor results. While initially given a role as interim coach, Stéphan was given the permanent role 9 days later after a string of victories including against Astana in the UEFA Europa League, qualifying Rennes for their first ever European knockout round[1]. On 27 April 2019 Stéphan led Rennes to their first trophy in 48 years, beating PSG 6–5 on penalties in the 2019 Coupe de France Final in Paris.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Stéphan is the son of current France national football team assistant manager Guy Stéphan.
