The 2023-24 Saudi Pro League (SPL) season has delivered a wealth of unexpected and electrifying performances from both local talents and international stars.

One standout tale of this season has been the meteoric rise of Moroccan striker Abderrazak Hamdallah, who proudly dons the Al-Ittihad jersey. Hamdallah’s recent exploits have been nothing short of remarkable, notching up an impressive four goals in his last three league outings. His scoring spree has even propelled him past some of the planet’s most renowned and high-priced players, including the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Roberto Firmino, Malcom Filipe Silva, and Sadio Mane, all of whom have made their SPL debut in 2023.
