David Nakhid (born 15 May 1964) is a Trinidadian former footballer who played at both professional and international levels, as a midfielder.
After playing college soccer at American University, Nakhid played as a professional in Belgium, Switzerland, Greece, Lebanon, Trinidad and Tobago, the United States, Sweden, and the United Arab Emirates for KSV Waregem, Grasshopper, PAOK, Al-Ansar, Joe Public, New England Revolution, Emirates Club, Al-Mabarrah and Caledonia AIA.
He also played for the Trinidad and Tobago national team between 1992 and 2005, scoring 8 goals in 35 games, including playing in six FIFA World Cup qualifying matches.
He currently runs the David Nakhid International Football School. On 16 October 2015, he announced that he had the five nominations from football associations to become a FIFA President candidate. Twelve days later, his campaign was over after it was found that U.S. Virgin Islands Soccer Federation had nominated two candidates, both nominations had been declared null by FIFA but the other unnamed candidate had more than the minimum five nominations and was able to continue his campaign. Nakhid announced his decision to appeal.
