Assane N'Diaye (born August 1, 1974 in Nguekoh, Senegal, died February 13, 2008 in Dakar, Senegal) was a football defender from Senegal. As well as playing in the centre of defence, N'Diaye was accomplished as a defensive midfielder. His main footballing attributes were mostly physical, his strength and pace in particular, however he also was an unnervingly accurate passer. He played a key role for Shakhtar Donetsk during their first league win in 2002. Around the time of his move to Shakthar, he was very highly rated and great things were expected of him. His attributes on Championship Manager 01/02 in particular, showed his perceived potential. However, one of the criticisms directed at N'Diaye was his supposed lack of desire and determination, something which may have halted his assent to the top level of football.

He died in 2008 after a short illness at the age of 33.[1]
