Fabrice Abriel appointed women's team coach

Paris Saint-Germain are delighted to announce Fabrice Abriel has been appointed head coach of the women’s team. The French coach has signed a contract with the capital club through to June 2026.

A former player who came through the Paris Saint-Germain youth academy, Fabrice Abriel made his senior debut with the Club and won the Intertoto Cup in the Rouge-et-Bleu shirt in 2001.

After his professional football career, he turned to a coaching career, starting with FC Gobelins, and gaining experience with the French military team and at the Amiens SC youth academy. In 2020, he became assistant coach at FC Fleury 91 before becoming head coach at the end of the season.

Under his leadership, the club finished fourth in D1 Arkema in 2022 and 2023, and fifth last season. He qualified the club systematically for the Women’s Coupe de France semi-finals, and they were beaten in the final last May by Paris Saint-Germain.

“It’s a real honour to have been chosen to start this new chapter for the Paris Saint-Germain Women’s team. I would like to thank the Club for their faith in me. I was fortunate enough to be at the youth academy and to have made my professional debut here. Today, I’m proud to return and delighted to have the chance to give back to Paris Saint-Germain what it gave me. I’m looking forward to starting work with this squad of extremely talented players, who should be ambitious for the seasons to come”, said Fabrice Abriel.
