Malik Buari (born 21 January 1984) is a Ghanaian football midfielder and left-sided defender. He currently plays for the Combined Counties League team Chessington & Hook United.

Career[edit]

Buari was formerly at Fulham, making his debut in the Premier League against Everton on 23 August 2003.[2] He failed to score in the five first team games he played for Fulham before moving to Woking on a free transfer.

New Zealand Knights[edit]

Buari was one of the many signings made by new coach Paul Nevin intended to help improve on the disastrous inaugural A-League season. Buari impressed in pre-season but he really made a name for himself in Round Two. The Knights had held Adelaide United at 0-0 for the whole match when in the 88th minute, Buari released a 25-metre thunderbolt which went straight into the top corner to win the game and also secure the Knights first home win ever.

International[edit]

Buari made a handful of appearances for England under-15s and under-16s.[3]
