Michel Dussuyer (born 28 May 1959) is a French football manager who currently manages the national team of Guinea.

Coaching career[edit]

He played for OGC Nice, Olympique Alès and AS Cannes. He was an assistant coach at AS Cannes from 1996 to 2002, when he became manager of Guinea. In 2006, he was an assistant coach to Henri Michel for the Côte d'Ivoire national football team.[1] He came back at AS Cannes as manager from 2006 to 2007.[2] He then managed the Benin national football team from June 2008 until 8 February 2010, when all of the management and players were sacked for their poor performance in the 2010 African Cup of Nations.[3][4] On 24 May 2010 returned as head coach of the Guinea national football team.[5] After leaving in late 2013, he was re-appointed in February 2014.[6]
