La Liga doesn’t quite have a tradition of African players like the Premier League or Ligue 1 for example, however, several of the continent’s favourite sons have starred in the Spanish top flight.

This feature runs down the Top 20 African players to have played in La Liga. Largely, those mentioned are no longer playing in Spain, but there are a few that do and some who may be in line to make a return.

This article ranks players based on their contributions and achievements in Spain, rather than beyond. Therefore, star players such as Michael Essien—who made his name in foreign lands before arriving in Spain—have not been considered.
