Sally Sarr (born 6 May 1986) is a French-born Mauritanian football defender playing for FC Lucerne in the Swiss Super League.

Club career[edit]

Sarr began his career in his native France with Le Havre AC before leaving to join Greek side Thrasyvoulos F.C. in 2006. He spent three years with them but only manager 25 games during this time. In 2009, he moved to Switzerland to play for FC Wil in the Challenge League helping the club to a respectable 3rd-placed finish. In 2009-10 he was part of the side that finished 6th in the Challenge League and in 2010-11 he impressed enough to earn a move to FC Luzern, stepping up to play in the Swiss Super League. Early into his Luzern career he impressed enough to earn the nickname "Sally Sarr Superstar".[1] He has previously been likened to Lillian Thuram.[2]

International career[edit]

Sarr made his debut for the Mauritania national football team in a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualification 1-1 tie with South Africa.[3]


Sally is known for his unique belly flop dance, which he usually celebrates with.[4]
