Taribo West

Taribo West (born March 26, 1974 in Ajegunle, Lagos) is a Nigerian football defender who currently is a free agent.

West is also known for the various unusual and colourful hairstyles that he has sported over the years. West's tackling style has frequently got him into trouble, and throughout his career his lack of pace exacerbated this.

Club career

West has had a successful career, playing for AJ Auxerre, Inter Milan, A.C. Milan, Derby County, FC Kaiserslautern, FK Partizan, Al-Arabi and Plymouth Argyle.

In August 2005, Derby County fans sent shirts to Taribo West's hometown in Nigeria in a campaign backed by BBC Radio Derby.

On August 18, 2007 West signed a one-year contract with Iranian club Paykan F.C.., but Failed to make a start with the club. West had his contract terminated by mutual consent only three months later. It was widely believed that West had returned to football in early 2008, when he signed for the Spanish Segunda División side Xerez CD, however it was revealed by the BBC three days later that the President of the club flatly refuted these allegations leaving many puzzled as to why West made this bizarre claim.
