Moubarak 'Mbark' Boussoufa (Arabic: مُبارك بوصوفا‎; born 15 August 1984 in Amsterdam) is a Dutch-born Moroccan football player for R.S.C. Anderlecht.


Early career

Mbark started off at the youth academy of Ajax Amsterdam before joining Chelsea F.C. He spent the 2005/06 season with K.A.A. Gent, winning several prizes in 2006: Belgian Footballer of the Year, Belgian Young Footballer of the Year and Belgian Ebony Shoe. He is only the second player from a North African country to win the Ebony Shoe, after Ahmed Hossam.


In June 2006, Boussoufa signed a 4-year contract with R.S.C. Anderlecht for €3.5 million transfer. At the start of the 2009-10 season, he scored a goal against Turkish side Sivasspor during the Champions League third round qualifying match.

International career

Boussoufa has a Dutch passport and, as such would have been eligible to play for Dutch national team if selected, but chose Morocco and played his first match for the Moroccan national team against the USA on 23 May 2006.
