Jacques Santini (born April 25, 1952 in Delle, France) is a former football player and manager. He played for AS Saint-Étienne during the 1970s, and reached the European Cup final with them in 1976. He has managed Toulouse FC, Lille OSC, AS Saint-Étienne, FC Sochaux, Olympique Lyonnais, France, Tottenham Hotspur and AJ Auxerre.

Jacques Santini is one of the most accomplished football managers - coach in France. Together with Jean Michel Aulas and Bernard Lacombe he was involved in the transformation of Lyon into a French football giant. From 1997 to 2000 he was Sports' director, helping lay the foundation which resulted in Lyon becoming the best football club in France. As manager of Lyon from 2000-2002 he was winner of French League Cup in 2001, and in 2002 he won the French Championship.

Santini was chosen "The best French coach " on 2002 by France Football and World's The Best National Coach of the Year on 2003 by International Federation of Football History & Statistics (IFFHS)

Santini replaced Roger Lemerre as France manager in 2002.[1] He had already resigned from the position before Euro 2004, where France surprisingly lost to Greece in the quarter-final.[2][3]

Santini took the managerial position at Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur after Euro 2004.[4] He surprisingly announced his resignation after just 13 games.[5] Officially, Santini left England due to personal problems, but it was widely reported that a series of disagreements with then Sporting Director Frank Arnesen led to his departure.[6] Speaking in 2005, Santini said he quit partly because he felt agreements with the club were broken, but he admitted he "dug his own grave" by agreeing to join the club before the end of Euro 2004.[7]

He took the job of head coach of AJ Auxerre in Ligue 1 in 2005, but was sacked in 2006 due to the his conflict with Vice-President of Auxerre Guy Roux[8][9]

On June 23, 2008, Santini was linked with the vacant managerial position at Scottish Premier League club Hearts but he has refused this offer.[10] Also According to the French press he has declined the offers to manage the Cameroon, Iran and Tunisia national teams.
