Morocco’s “The Executioner” Who Beat Ighalo To Win Top Scorer Award in Saudi Pro League


The Saudi Professional League ended on the last day of May 2023, with Moroccan international and Al Ittihad forward – Abderrazak Hamdallah winning the top scorer’s award with 21 goals in 26 league games.

The 32-year-old center-forward moved to Saudi Arabia from Qatar in the summer of 2018 and has fired on all cylinders while playing initially for Al Nassr FC and currently for Al Ittihad Club.

Abderrazak has scored 150 goals combined for both clubs, with most of those (112) coming in his stint at his former club – Al Nassr, while the remaining 38 goals have come for Ittihad since his signing in January 2022.

His highest goal-scoring award this season helped his Al Ittihad side clinch their 9th League title in history, beating Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr in second place with 5 points.

The likes of Al Nassr’s Anderson Talisca (20), and Al Hilal’s Odion Ighalo (19) complete the top three goal scorer’s chart in the league.
