Moustapha Bayal Sall (born November 30, 1985 in Dakar) is a Senegalese football central defender who currently plays for Al-Arabi. He joined the Qatari club during the summer of 2016 from French club Saint-Étienne.[1]

Playing career[edit]

In March 2007 he signed a contract with IK Start. But three months later, having never played a game for the club, he signed for AS Saint-Étienne. Start brought the matter to FIFA and on 3 December 2007 Sall was handed a four-month ban due to start in July 2008 and Saint-Étienne were ordered to pay $150,000 in compensation to the Norwegian club.[2]

In January 2012 he went on a six-month loan to AS Nancy-Lorraine.[3] He was put aside by the management in St Etienne, according to him because of personal problems with the manager Christophe Galtier, and therefore not playing anymore.[4]
