Career

He started his soccer career with a club from the west of Algeria called (Jeunesse Sportive de Tiaret) then he moved to JSK club [Jeunesse Sportive de Kabylie] and helped them to win the African Champions League in 1990. In 1992, he joined French club AJ Auxerre for an undisclosed fee.[1] In May 1997, Arsenal coach Arsène Wenger tried to buy him along with Swiss center back Murat Yakın in what would have been a "sensational" £7 million deal;[2] however the deal did not succeed and Saib instead joined Spanish club Valencia for £3 million.[3] In 1998, he joined English club Tottenham Hotspur, who were fighting to avoid being relegated from the Premier League, for £2.3 million.[4] He helped Tottenham avoid relegation by scoring the sixth goal in their penultimate game of the 1997–1998 season against Wimbledon F.C., which ended 6–2.[5]
