Christian Gourcuff (born 5 April 1955) in Hanvec, Brittany is a French football manager and former player. He currently manages French Ligue 1 side Lorient.

His son, Yoann, is also a professional footballer with Lyon and a French International who competed in the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

He played for Stade Rennais, US Berné, EA Guingamp, FC Rouen, FC La Chaux-de-Fonds, Lorient, Le Mans and Montreal Supra.

He coached Lorient, Le Mans, Pont-L'Abbé, Stade Rennais and Al-Ittihad, and is considered in France as a shrewd tactician with a strong commitment to attacking football and an eye for young talent. Gourcuff is thus widely credited with having overseen the progress of youngsters such as Jérémy Morel, André-Pierre Gignac, Kevin Gameiro, Morgan Amalfitano, Michael Ciani, Christophe Jallet, Laurent Koscielny, Bruno Ecuele Manga and Lamine Koné.
