Pierre-André Schürmann (born 5 July 1960[1] in Port-Valais, Switzerland) is a Swiss football manager and former footballer. He is currently the manager of the Algeria national under-23 football team.



During his playing career, Schürmann played for FC Sion, FC Monthey, FC Chiasso, Lausanne Sports, FC Basel and FC Wil.[2]


Schürmann became player-manager of FC Wil in 1994. He then went on to coach Lausanne Sports. He has been working in the SFV's youth set-up since 2000. He was part of the coaching staff behind Switzerlands victory in the 2002 UEFA European Under-17 Championship. He helped the Switzerland U19s reach the semi-finals in Switzerland in 2004.[2]

Schürmann was appointed as manager of the Switzerland national under-21 team on 18 July 2007.[2]

In June 2009, he joined Neuchâtel Xamax[3] and on 14 April 2010 after four consecutive league defeats, Neuchatel Xamax officials sacked and replaced him with the club's junior squad coach Jean-Michel Aeby.[4]

In April 2018 he was one of 77 applicants for the vacant Cameroon national team job.[5]
