Fary Faye (born 24 December 1974) is a Senegalese professional footballer who plays for Boavista F.C. in Portugal, as a striker.
He spent most of his professional career in
Portugal (more than 15 years), most notably with Beira-Mar. At one point, he ranked in the country's top division scoring list's Top 5.
Club career [ edit ]
Dakar, Fary began his career with ASC Diaraf in his native country, then started his Portuguese adventure in 1996, signing with lowly Grupo União Sport de Montemor alongside compatriot and teammate Khadim Faye and remaining with the third division side for two seasons, before moving to S.C. Beira-Mar.
From 1998 to 2003 Fary was an everpresent fixture in the top scorer's list in Portugal, hitting an average of one goal every three games in the
top level. In the 2002–03 campaign he netted 18 goals for the Aveiro side, which finished 13th.
In the 2003 summer Fary signed for
Boavista FC, but his role gradually diminished compared to his previous spell. In 2006–07 he went scoreless in 23 matches, although he only played three as a starter.
In July 2008, upon Boavista's
relegation to division two, Fary returned to his first Portuguese professional club Beira-Mar, also in that category. After appearing rarely as the club returned to the top flight in 2010 after a three-year absence – four games, no goals – the 35-year-old joined another side in the nation, Clube Desportivo das Aves.
International career [ edit ]
Fary was part of the
Senegalese 2000 Africa Cup of Nations team which reached the quarter-finals, losing to Nigeria.
