Messaoud «Saoudi» Koussim (Arabic: مسعود كوسيم‎, born February 6, 1941 in Sétif) is a retired Algerian football player who spent his entire senior playing career with ES Sétif.[1] He was a member of the team that won the league-cup double in the 1967–68 season. He went on to become president of ES Sétif from 1972 to 1977, despite still playing for the team.[2] During his time with ES Sétif, he won the league title once, and the Algerian Cup three times, scoring in the 1967 and 1968 finals.[3]

He also played for the Algeria national team, featuring in two unofficial friendlies against Olympique de Marseille and FC La Chaux-de-Fonds.[4]

Koussim is the father of Algerian film director and screenwriter Yanis Koussim.[5]
