Even goalscorer for Seville: Morocco’s World Cup goalkeeper Bono will play for Al-Hilal in the future

Even goalscorer for Seville: Morocco's World Cup goalkeeper Bono will play for Al-Hilal in the future

In the meantime he had also been traded at Bayern Munich, but in the future Bono will no longer play in one of the top European leagues, but in Saudi Arabia. The Moroccan national goalkeeper is moving to Al-Hilal in the Saudi Professional League there and is thus following in the footsteps of Neymar, who also ended up in Riyadh as an 18-time national champion.

The 32-year-old Bono, who sensationally advanced to the semi-finals with his home country at the World Cup in Qatar, is leaving Europa League champions FC Sevilla, with whom he won the second most important trophy at European level twice: in 2020 and 2023, when he saved twice in a penalty shoot-out against Roma in Budapest. His last competitive game for Sevilla ended unhappily – in the penalty shoot-out in the Supercup final against CL winners ManCity, the club lost out in the “lottery” from the point on Wednesday. Bono, born in Canada, is said to bring the Sevillanos a transfer fee of around 20 million euros.

Equalizer in Valladolid – Trofeo Zamora winner

In a farewell message, the Andalusians thanked their previous goalkeeper, who had played for the traditional club since 2019 – including 142 competitive appearances, 58 clean sheets and even a goal. That was in 2020/21 when he scored the last shot of the game to make it 1-1 away in Valladolid. In the 2021/22 season, Bono won the “Trofeo Zamora” as the best goalkeeper in La Liga.

FC Bayern, on the other hand, who are looking for a goalkeeper, are said to have set their sights on Israeli goalkeeper Daniel Peretz from Maccabi Tel Aviv.
