Jean "Tchouki" Djorkaeff (born October 27 1939) is a retired French football player. He was born in the French commune of Charvieu, located in the "département" of Isère and is ethnically Kalmyk. He made his debut as a professional footballer playing for Lyon in a match against Limoges on December 28 1958. Though he started out as a striker, he was famous for his work as central defender and appeared in over 500 matches in the French football league. He spent a total of 16 seasons with the league, during which he played with only three clubs (eight seasons with Lyon, four with Marseille, and four with Paris FC). He won the Coupe de France (French Cup) twice, the first time with Lyons in 1964 and the second with Marseille in 1969. Djorkaeff also played for France in the 1966 World Cup. He is the father of Youri Djorkaeff who played for France in the 1998 World Cup and the 2000 Euro Cup. He also coached the Armenia national football team.

Today he serves as the director of the Coupe de France commission.
