Omar Daf (born 12 February 1977 in Dakar) is a former Senegalese football player. He played for the Senegal national football team and was a participant at the 2002 FIFA World Cup. He also holds a French passport and spent most of his playing career at the French club Sochaux-Montbéliard.


Born in Dakar, Daf began playing football with US Gorée. At age 17, a Belgian football scout, Karel Brokken, recruited him to Belgian Second Division side K.V.C. Westerlo, where he began his professional career. A year later, he joined French side Thonon FC before embarking on a 12-year spell with FC Sochaux-Montbéliard in 1997.[1]

On 4 August 2009, Daf moved to Ligue 2 team Stade Brestois and three years later, rejoined Sochaux.
