Club career

Born in Lausanne, Chapuisat started his professional career with hometown club FC Lausanne-Sport, moving in January 1991 to Bundesliga's Bayer Uerdingen and switching to powerhouse Borussia Dortmund in that summer.

In his first season at Dortmund Chapuisat scored 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 following campaign's UEFA Champions League, where he netted three in ten games during the victorious run.

Chapuisat then transferred to Grasshopper Club Zürich, playing there for three years. In 2002 he moved to another Swiss first division side, BSC Young Boys, before rejoining Lausanne now in the second level, 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, Chapuisat 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 FIFA World Cup, UEFA Euro 1996 and Euro 2004.[2]

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.[3]
