Pierre-André Schürmann (born 5 July 1960 in Port-Valais or Monthey[A 1]) is a former Swiss football player and current football coach.



Schürmann began his career with FC Sion, where he played for one season. From 1981, he played for two seasons at Monthey in the canton of Valais. In 1983, he moved to FC Chiasso in Ticino. After one season, he moved to Vevey in 1984, where he stayed for two seasons. He then moved to Lausanne-Sport in 1986 for the then relatively high sum of 150,000 francs,[1] where he stayed for six years and played the most games of his career. From 1992 he played one more season with FC Basel.[2] From 1994[3][4] he was player-coach at FC Wil for one and a half seasons.


At FC Wil, Schürmann was first player-coach, from the 1995/96 season he was only coach. He remained with FC Wil until 1997.[5] In 1998 he became coach at Lausanne-Sport,[6] after just under two years he left the club again in December 2000.[7] From 2004, he was coach of the U19 and U20 teams of the Swiss Football Association. With the U19s, he played in the 2004 U-19 European Championship in his own country. However, he was defeated in the semi-finals by Turkey in extra time. With the U20s, he played in the 2005 U21 World Cup in the Netherlands, but was eliminated in the preliminary round. From 2007, he coached with the U21s until 2009, when he moved to Xamax, where he lost his job before the end of the season. In 2012, he was coach at Sion for 41 days.[8][9] From 2014 to 2016, Schürmann was coach of the Algerian U-23 national team. Among other things, he led the U23 to the 2016 Summer Olympics.[10] There, however, it was already in the preliminary round end, after one point from three games. From 2018, he was co-coach under Christian Gross at Zamalek Cairo.[11] Schürmann was then co-coach of Al-Ahly Jeddah, first again under Christian Gross, and finally also under Vladan Milojević.
