Pierre-Albert 'Gabet' Chapuisat (born 5 April 1948) is a Swiss retired footballer who played as a defender, and a manager.

Playing career[edit]

During his extensive professional career, Lausanne-born Chapuisat played mainly for hometown's FC Lausanne-Sport, having three different spells with the club. In the 1972–73 season he had his first and single abroad experience, representing Paris FC of France, by then in Ligue 1.[1]

Chapuisat finished his Lausanne career at 36, then moved to lowly Vevey Sports (helping the side retain its Super League status during his two-year spell), and retired after one season with FC Renens. He was capped 34 times by the Swiss national team, the first game being on 14 May 1969 in a 0–1 home loss against Romania for the 1970 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, in Lausanne.

Coaching career[edit]

A manager immediately after his 1987 retirement (starting with his main club's youth teams), Chapuisat coached mainly in the lower leagues of his country. In the 2006–07 campaign, however, he helped FC Sion to the third place in the top division.

Personal life[edit]

Chapuisat's son, Stéphane, was also a professional footballer. A forward, he also represented Lausanne, but played mainly in Germany for Borussia Dortmund, appearing 103 times for Switzerland.[2]
