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. 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.
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. The influence brought by his vast experience is widely regarded as one of the factors behind the success of the partnership of Ledley King and Michael Dawson in the heart of Tottenham's defence. His sole goal for the club came against rivals Arsenal, in a 5–4 defeat at White Hart Lane.
