Noureddine Naybet (Arabic: نور الدين نيبت‎; born 10 February 1970 in Casablanca) is a retired Moroccan international football player and captain. His position was central defender.

Naybet played a record 115 matches for the Morocco national football team from 1990 to 2006. He was selected for the 1994 and 1998 World Cups, as well as six Africa Cup of Nations and the 1992 Olympic football.


Naybet spent the longest and most successful period of his career with Deportivo La Coruña in Spain's La Liga, from 1996 to 2004. He won one league title, one Copa del Rey and 2 Spanish Super Cups. Naybet also earned 115 caps for the Moroccan national team, scoring two goals.

In August 1999, Naybet agreed to a move to Treble-holders Manchester United.[citation needed] However, the Red Devils were worried about his injured knee and United subsequently signed Mikaël Silvestre instead.

He did eventually make a move to the Premier League with Tottenham Hotspur on 11 August 2004, aged 34. The transfer was for two seasons, for a fee estimated by Spanish sources at around €1 million.[1]

Although an important member of the Tottenham first team in the 2004–05 season, he was a reserve player under new manager Martin Jol, making only three league appearances in the 2005–06 season. His sole goal for the club came against rivals Arsenal, in a 5–4 defeat at White Hart Lane.[2]

In January 2006, Naybet appeared for Morocco in the African Cup of Nations for the last time as he announced his retirement from international football afterwards.

He was released from Tottenham Hotspur on 27 May 2006[3] and in August 2007, became assistant to Henri Michel at the Morocco national team.[4]
