Daniel Bravo (born 9 February 1963 in Toulouse is a former French international football player who played as a defensive midfielder.


On 24 July 1980, he made his debut for Nice[1] at 17 years of age in a game against Metz in the French Championship D1. Despite the relegation of Nice to D2 in 1982, he was called up to the French team to face Italy in February 1982.[2] That night, the Blues beat Italy for the first time in over sixty years, and Bravo scored their second goal.

He stayed at Nice for their spell in D2 for one season and managed to score eleven goals. He then signed for Monaco.[3] This was the beginning of a series of clubs he would play for that would lead to him playing for Paris Saint Germain and then in Italy. With the French national team, Bravo played infrequently in the blue jersey, but still participated in the victorious Euro 1984, replacing Jean-Marc Ferreri, during the match against Yugoslavia.

Whilst at Marseille he played in the 1999 UEFA Cup Final.
