Bernard Bosquier (born 19 June 1942 in Thonon-les-Bains, Haute-Savoie) is a former French international footballer who played as a defender.


Bosquier came up from Olympique Alès, and signed with FC Sochaux-Montbéliard in 1961, where he became an excellent defender playing at right back before moving to centre back later at Olympique Marseille.

He quickly earned his first cap for France on 2 December 1964, aged 22, against Belgium. He was then part of France squad at the FIFA World Cup 1966 in England playing in all France's games.

Coming back from the World Cup he signed with AS Saint-Étienne, where he won his first titles and was widely regarded as the best French footballer of the 1960s, winning the French player of the year award in 1967 & 1968.

He surprisingly left Olympique Marseille in his first season. He finished his football career at FC Martigues eventually making 354 appearances in 11 seasons. His goalscoring record of 43 goals in very good for a defender and was helped by his great free-kick prowess.

He had then a short career of sport director and discovered talentuous players such as Grégory Coupet or Ľubomír Moravčík when he worked for AS Saint-Étienne.He currently organises coaching for young footballers.
