Marc Libbra (born 5 August 1972 in Toulon) is a French former professional footballer, whose previous clubs include Marseille, Norwich City, Toulouse FC and Hibernian.

Libbra scored a memorable goal on his debut for Norwich City, coming off the bench to score against Manchester City in August 2001.[1] Seven days later he scored a late winner away at Wimbledon.[2] However, he was unable to maintain such form and was released by the club shortly after the start of the 2002-03 season.

Since retiring as a player, Libbra has worked as a football pundit for French television.[3]
