Arab Players At World Class Clubs

I was just thinking of all the Arab players that have played for top clubs. Not many come to mind but i decided to make a list. Only conditions is that the team must truly be a World Class team (not any Premiership, La Liga or Calcio team) and that the player must have had a professional contract with the club:

Inter Milan
Sabri Lamouchi (France/Tunisia)
Anther Yahia (Algeria)
Tijani Belaid (Tunisia)

Juventus
Sofiane Zaaboub (Algeria)
Zinedine Zidane (France/Algeria)

AC Milan
Samir Beloufa (Algeria)

AS Roma
Mido (Egypt)

Real Mardid
Zinedine Zidane (France/Algeria)

AJAX Amsterdam
Mido (Egypt)
Hatem Trabelsi (Tunisia)
Nourdin Boukhari (Morocco)
Karim Bridji (Algeria)
I know theres way more Moroccans that played for AJAX but only person i can find so far is Boukhari. If anyone can add to that, PLEASE DO!

Liverpool FC
Carl Medjani (France/Algeria)

Arsenal
Rami Shaaban (Sweden/Egypt)

My other big clubs are Barcelona (none), Chelsea (none), Manchester United (none), Bayern Munich (none). Feel free to add to this!

Oh yeah, I think the next player to be added to the list will be Marouane Chamakh (Bordeaux & Morocco). He has the size and the talent to play at a big time club and its only a matter of time before we see him playing for one of these teams.

Rabeh Madjer, Youssef Chippo (FCP)

Abdel Satar Sabry, Taher el Khalj and Abdel Karim el Hedreioui (SLB)

I was thinking of including FC Porto but I dont know if i would consider them World Class. Maybe a second tier of world class along with sides like Borussia Dortmund, Valencia, etc..

Well, I don't know if Sporting is a world class team ..

In that case, Hany Ramzy (Egypt and Werder Bremen/Kaiserslautern).

But I think TS meant teams who really have accomplished something on the European scence.

Not even accomplished on the European scene but more of consistently strong. Because in that you would end up including Nottingham Forest, who won the Champions League twice or teams like Borussia Dortmund, Marseille, Hamburg and some of those Eastern European teams that have won the Champions League.
