Hervé Revelli (born 5 May 1946) is a French former footballer who played as a forward. He is well–known for having won the French Championship a joint–record seven times, along with only his Saint-Étienne teammate Jean-Michel Larqué, as well as Thiago Silva and Marco Verratti of Paris Saint–Germain, and Grégory Coupet, Juninho, and Sidney Govou of Lyon.[1]


Revelli scored 31 Ligue 1 goals during the calendar year of 1969. Fifty years later in 2019, Kylian Mbappé became the first French player to score at least 30 goals in a calendar year in Ligue 1 since Revelli's feat.[2]

Revelli is the joint-top scorer in the Derby Rhône-Alpes between Saint-Étienne and Lyon with 14 goals along with former Lyon player Fleury Di Nallo.[3] He finished his career in SC Draguignan, having already started a career as playing manager.[4]

In addition to Switzerland and France, he managed in Tunisia and Algeria as well as the national teams of Mauritius and Benin.[4]
