Abdelaziz Barrada (born 19 June 1989), sometimes known as just Abdel, is a Moroccan professional footballer who plays for French club Olympique de Marseille as a central midfielder.

Club career


Barrada was born in Provins, France. After playing three years with Paris Saint-Germain FC's reserves, he moved to Spain in 2010 and joined Getafe CF, initially being assigned to the reserves which were playing for the first time ever in Segunda División B. On 14 March 2011 he signed his first professional contract with the Madrid outskirts team,[1] and proved essential as the B's eventually retained their league status at the end of the season.

On 28 August 2011 Barrada made his La Liga debut with Getafe, starting and playing 60 minutes in a 1–1 home draw against Levante UD.[2] He was immediately propelled into manager Luís García's starting XI.[3]

On 6 November 2011 Barrada scored his first goal for Getafe's main squad, helping the hosts – who played more than 60 minutes with ten players – to a 3–2 home win against Atlético Madrid.[4] In the following month, on the 17th, he netted twice in a 2–1 success at RCD Mallorca.[5]

Barrada scored four goals in 32 games in both of his seasons with the club, helping it to consecutive midtable positions (11th and 10th).

Al-Jazira / Marseille

On 6 July 2013 Barrada joined UAE Arabian Gulf League club Al Jazira Club, signing a four-year contract.[6] The following summer he agreed to a four-year deal with Olympique de Marseille, for a reported 4.5 million.[7]

In only his second appearance in Ligue 1 Barrada scored his first goal in the competition, coming on as a 87th minute substitute in the home fixture against OGC Nice and closing the score at 4–0 for the hosts immediately after.
