Youssef Chippo (Arabic: يوسف شيبو) (born May 10, 1973 in Rabat) is a footballer from Morocco. He was a renowned midfielder on the national squad during the 1990s, and was a member of the team that participated in the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. He also spent 2 seasons in FC Porto where he began to display his talent in Europe.
His next stop came with Coventry City in the English Premier League. He signed for them in 1999 and they were relegated in his second season, but he remained for two more seasons before leaving to play in Qatar.
Chippo missed out on the 2004 African Nations Cup in Tunisia, and had been out of the Atlas Lions squad for two years, after falling out with the team's former coach, Badou Zaki. He was only called up to the team a few weeks ahead of the 2006 African Nations Cup by new coach Mohammed Fakkir.
Chippo had 79 caps with the Moroccan team prior to the 2006 African Nations Cup. The competition was his fourth Nations Cup finals, and purportedly his last, declaring his retirement from international competition after the cup.
In February 2007 it was reported that Hibernian had taken Chippo on trial, but he was released shortly afterwards. In October 2007, Swedish club Hammarby IF also gave him a trial, but he wasn't offered a contract.
