In February, En-Nesyri gave his football club Leganes the first hat-trick in its history in a match against Real Betis.
“It was not a personal success, but a collective effort of the team and scoring a hat-trick will always be memorable for me,” said the Fez native.
En-Nesyri signed a four-year contract with Leganes in August 2018.
He started his football career in the youth team of the Maghreb AS.
The footballer was summoned to join the Atlas Lions in 2016 when he played a friendly match against Albania.
En-Nesyri also played with the Moroccan national football team in the 2018 World Cup.
