Patrice Carteron (born 30 July 1970) is a French football coach and former professional player. He coaches Raja Casablanca in Morocco. His previous managerial posts include the Mali national team, TP Mazembe and Al Ahly.

Coaching career[edit]

In 2007, Carteron took over as manager for AS Cannes, but was replaced by Albert Emon in June 2009.

On 25 June 2009, Dijon FCO hired the former Cannes coach.[1] During his time with Dijon, he got the club promoted to the French top flight. On 24 May 2012 he parted company with Dijon, who had been relegated from the top division Ligue 1.

On 12 July 2012, he was named as the head coach of Mali,[2] where he led the African nation to a FIFA rank as high as 21. Mali also finished third in the African Cup of Nations during his tenure.

On 22 May 2013, he agreed to take charge of Congolese champions TP Mazembe, signing a two-year contract. Mazembe confirmed that Carteron would become their new head coach, while continuing his duties with Mali.[3]

With Mazembe, Carteron led the club to two league titles, three African Super Cup titles, and one African Champions League title.

On 7 January 2016, Carteron left TP Mazembe as his contract had run out. [4]

After leaving Mazembe, Carteron took over at Wadi Degla, an Egyptian club team in 2016-17. The team won 20 of their 30 matches during Carteron's tenure.

In 2017, Carteron moved on to Al Nassr, where he led the club to a third place finish in the Saudi Professional League, thus qualifying for the Asian Champions League.

On 22 May 2017, United Soccer League club Phoenix Rising FC announced Carteron would take over head coaching duties, and would join the club as early as the first week of June.[5]

On 12 June 2018, the African giant Al Ahly SC officially announced the signing of Carteron to take the seat of the manager for two years.[6][7][8]

Following Al Ahly's loss at the 2018 CAF Champions League final and the team's knockout from Zayed Champions Cup, he was sacked on 23 November 2018.[9]

He was appointed coach of three times CAF Champions League winner Raja Casablanca on 31 January 2019. Two months later, he won the African Super Cup against Espérence de Tunis, the second in Raja Casablanca's history. [10]
