Alhaji Momodo Nije (born 30 March 1948, Banjul, Gambia), more commonly known as Biri Biri is a Gambian footballer who used to play for Sevilla FC. He also played under Brian Clough for Derby County FC.


He is regarded by Sevilla fans as a cult figure and, at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, the most loyal fans named their cheering section (and thus, themselves) after him Biris Norte.

He currently lives back home in Gambia working as a civil servant for Banjul council, where he also coaches young children at Wallidan Banjul.


In 2000, he was given the order of merit by the Gambian President Yahya Jammeh as the country's 'greatest footballer of the last millennium and of all time'. [en icon Mohamed Fajah Barrie, [ Biri Biri: Gambia's 'greatest'] , BBC Sport, 23 May, 2005]
