Patrick Colleter (born 6 November 1965) is a former French professional football player.
Colleter begin his football career with his local team Brest in 1986. After some impressive performances, Colleter was rewarded with a call-up to the French B national team, and a transfer to Montpellier in 1990. After one season at the southern club he spent five seasons at Paris Saint-Germain, where he won the French League Championship in 1994, the French Cup in 1993 and 1995 and the French League Cup in 1995 as well as the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup in 1996. In 1996, he left Paris to enjoy single-season spells at Bordeaux and Olympique de Marseille.
In December 1998, he was signed by Southampton for £300,000. He made his debut at left-back on 26 December 1998 at home to Chelsea taking the place of the Saints' long-established left-back Francis Benali. He scored one goal for the club, a long-range strike in a 3-1 victory at home to Charlton Athletic on 9 January 1999.
He was a fiery but capable full-back, but his career at Southampton suffered following Dave Jones' replacement as manager by Glenn Hoddle. Hoddle was not keen on the Gallic method of defending and Colleter was left to grow frustrated in the reserves. Colleter eventually left Southampton in November 2000 he moved back to French football with Cannes. In all he played 26 games for Southampton, scoring once.
