Oussama Souaidy (born 25 August 1981) is a Moroccan retired footballer who played mainly as a defensive midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Born in Cahors, France, Souaidy made two Ligue 1 appearances for FC Toulouse in the 2000–01 season,[1] with the club being relegated straight to the Championnat National due to irregularities. After one further campaign with the club he moved to Spain, where he would remain until his retirement nine years later (with the exception of 2005–06 which was spent in Portugal with G.D. Estoril Praia, in the second division[2]).

In the former country, Souaidy never played in higher than Segunda División B, and competed his final five seasons in Tercera División. He represented SD Noja, RCD Mallorca B, UDA Gramenet, AD Fundación Logroñés, CD Mirandés,[3] CD Alfaro and CD Tudelano,[4] retiring in June 2011 at nearly 30 years of age.

International career[edit]

Souaidy gained one cap for Morocco, in 2002. Additionally, he was part of the squad that appeared at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, appearing in all the games as the national team exited in the group stage with a total of four points.[5]
