Star Algerian striker Baghdad Bounedjah won the Mansour Muftah Award given to the top scorer in the QNB Stars League.
He topped the chart with a record 39 goals from 22 matches with an average of 1.7 goals per game, as he played a vital role in Al Sadd’s triumph in the QNB Stars League.
In the process, Bounedjah became the Qatar league’s all-time top scorer in a single season. He surpassed Brazilian striker Clemerson Soares’ record of 27 goals set in the 2007-08 season for Al Gharafa.
He underlined his potential as a lethal striker by leading Al Sadd’s goal-scoring spree in the 2018-19 QNB Stars League, which saw The Wolves pump in a whopping 100 goals, for the first time in Qatar league history.
Bounedjah even struck seven goals in one match — Al Sadd’s 10-1 victory over Al Arabi in Week 2.
Bounedjah, a key member of the Algerian national team, was born on 24th November, 1991, in the city of Oran. He moved to Al Sadd in 2015 from Tunisian club ES Sahel.
