Hassan Nader (born 8 July 1965) is a Moroccan retired footballer who played as a striker.

He spent most of his 21-year senior career in Portugal – amassing top division totals of 219 games and 94 goals – namely with Farense, where he surpassed the 100-goal mark in official games.[1]

Club career[edit]

Born in Casablanca, Nader started his career with local club Wydad Casablanca, before signing with La Liga team RCD Mallorca in 1990–91. At the end of his second season the Balearic Islands team was relegated, and he also had a run-in with manager Lorenzo Serra Ferrer during his spell.[1]

In July 1992 Nader moved to Portuguese league side S.C. Farense, becoming the league's top scorer in 1994–95 with 21 goals and being influential in the Algarve side's qualification qualification to the UEFA Cup.[1] During eight years, he played in the team alongside compatriot Hajry Redouane.

Nader later moved to S.L. Benfica, but only appeared sparingly throughout two seasons and returned to Farense,[2] where he would remain until his 2004 retirement at the age of 39, as the team was relegated to the fourth level – he netted 11 league goals in his final year.

International career[edit]

A senior Moroccan international on 15 occasions, Nader played at the 1994 FIFA World Cup, scoring against Holland in a 1–2 group stage loss,[3] and at the 1992 Africa Cup of Nations.
