Club career

Chapuisat started his professional career with hometown Lausanne Sports, moving in January 1991 to Bundesliga's Bayer Uerdingen, switching to powerhouse Borussia Dortmund in that summer.

In his first season at Dortmund, Chapuisat netted 20 league goals, two short of Torjäger Fritz Walter, of eventual champions VfB Stuttgart. He stayed with Borussia until 1999, conquering back-to-back titles (although he played sparingly in 1995–96 due to injuries) and adding the 1997 Champions League, where he scored three in 10 games during the victorious campaign.

Chapuisat then transferred to Grasshoppers Zurich, playing there for three years. In 2002, he moved to another Swiss first division club, BSC Young Boys, before rejoining Lausanne, now in the second division, retiring at 37, with namely 106 goals in 228 Bundesliga games to his credit. He was also voted Swiss Footballer of the Year four times (1992, 1993, 1994 and 2001).

In November 2003, to celebrate UEFA's Jubilee, he was selected as the Golden Player of Switzerland by the Swiss Football Association as their most outstanding player of the past 50 years.[1]

International career

Chapuisat scored 21 goals in 103 caps for Switzerland and played in the 1994 World Cup, Euro 1996 and Euro 2004.

In the 1994 World Cup, appearing in four complete contests as the nation reached the round of 16, he scored in a 4-1 win over Romania, on 22 June.



His brother Cédric Chapuisat works currently as Head Coach from the reserve of CS Chênois[2] and is a former professional player.
