Hakimi was included in Morocco’s 26-man roster for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar on November 10, 2022.
In a round of 16, he scored the game-winning goal in a penalty shootout against Spain to advance his nation to the quarterfinals.
Achraf Hakimi and Hiba Abouk got married in 2020, two years after meeting in 2018. The couple has two sons, born in 2020 and 2022, respectively.
Hiba Aboukhris Benslimane, the youngest of four siblings and wife of Hakimi, was born in Madrid, is of Tunisian and Libyan descent. Her parents had previously relocated to Spain after leaving Tunisia.
Habouk is known for her roles in television series, especially that of Fátima in El Príncipe. She studied at the French Lycée in Madrid until age 18.
Later, she studied Arabic philology, and she earned a licentiate degree in drama from the RESAD.
Her acting career really started in 2010, and she has featured in six movies.
In 2012, she became part of the regular cast of the comedy series Antena 3 Con el culo al aire, in which she participated in the first two seasons, before making her debut in El Príncipe, a crime drama series on the Spanish free-to-air channel Telecinco.
The show, which is usually watched by more than five million viewers, saw her play her first leading role in 2014.
International football player Achraf Hakimi of Morocco has gained worldwide attention after his wife learned he owns nothing despite earning millions of euros with Paris Saint-Germain and the Moroccan national team.
The footballer’s wife, Hiba Abouk, filed for divorce and requested a half-share of the property and money he held. This revelation was made during the current divorce procedures in court.
She was shocked to see that Hakimi had listed all of his assets in his mother’s name and would ask her to make purchases for him anytime he needed something.
Millions of dollars in pay were deposited in accounts with his mother’s name on them, and it was discovered that all of his homes, cars, clothes, and jewellery were registered in her name.
According to the reports, his mother’s name is listed as the owner of 80% of everything he possesses.
Even though his marriage to the Spanish actress had already been deteriorating for months, Hakimi’s investigation for alleged rape in Paris, France, was the final straw.
Hakimi’s decision to not have his fortune registered in his name made headlines throughout the world, and although some praised him for being “wise” and a living legend for protecting his assets, others condemned him and his mother.
What Some People Had to Say
“Give this man the African football player of the Year award immediately. We are also working tirelessly to have him as the guest of honor at the next men’s conference,” said Elijah Edwin from Uganda.
“They’ve just been married for three years, and she wants half his property already. If they were married for 20 years she would have requested for his life alongside the entire properties. Black athletes should learn from this,” added Somto.
“This is not right. Yes, things may have happened that led to their divorce. But she is a human being who sacrificed two years of her life with Hakimi. She gave him something every human needs; companionship. She deserves to leave with something,” countered James Atite Sr.
“Marriage is going to lose value if a woman can spend years in marriage and leave without any additional value,” said Nabadda Sumayiya.
