Chaouki Ben Saada (Arabic: شوقي ابن سعادة‎‎) (born July 1, 1984 in Bastia, France) is a Tunisian footballer, currently playing for Troyes AC in France.

Career[edit]

Ben Saada plays as either a midfielder or a striker, and in 170 appearances with Bastia, he scored 16 goals for the team.

Despite much interest from bigger clubs, he remained with Bastia. However, on July 2, 2008, he signed with Ligue 1 side OGC Nice for 1.5 million euros along with teammate Kafoumba Coulibaly. He agreed to a three-year contract.

After a three-year stint with Nice, he signed a two-year deal with Ligue 2 outfit RC Lens on 24 August 2011.

On August 2012, Ben Saada moved to Ligue 2 club AC Arles-Avignon on a two-year contract. In October 2014, he then signed a one-year contract with Troyes AC, extending his stay in the Ligue 2.[1]

International career[edit]

He played international football for France at youth level, earning an Under-17 World Championship medal in 2001. Since then, he adopted the Tunisian nationality of his parents, and first played for the national side in March 2005. He has won 12 international caps, scoring 1 goal (as of 7 June 2006). He was in the Tunisian squad for the 2006 African Cup of Nations, but was initially omitted from the squad for 2006 World Cup, before being called up to replace Issam Jomaa, who withdrew with a knee injury.
